There are several ways to approach a job. And the KAEFER way can sometimes start from an unusual vantage point, from bottom upwards.
At the Dolphin Energy Offshore Platforms DOL1 & DOL2 in Qatar, the challenge was to finding way to do a complete re-paint of the Flare Bridge Structure (from platform to flare stack), Helideck, Liquid Burner Bridge, Flare/Liquid Burner Piping, and Test Separator (complete external painting for DOL1). Normally this would involve installing a complex set of scaffolding from the bottom upwards which was the big challenge and needs a lot of time and effort. This goes to show how approaching a challenge from different perspective and using KAEFER thinking can save money, time and improve performance as well.
Three steps for durable coating solutions
|1.||Analysis of media and environment where the steel structure is placed|
|2.||Specification of appropriate coating system, including quality of surface preparation and selection of suitable coating process to suit specific project demands|
|3.||Execution of coating application by trained and skilled staff under supervision of experienced coating inspectors for stringent QA/QC|
