Dräger to supply safety equipment to 23 platforms across North Sea

Dräger Marine & Offshore will supply equipment which detects and protects workers from hazardous gases to 23 platforms across the North Sea, under three new contracts worth more than £1 million ($1.3M).

Dräger is a provider of life-saving equipment and training with more than 14,000 employees in 190 countries.

The company said on Wednesday that the deals involved provision of portable gas detection equipment to three major operators over five years, including more than 1,700 personal gas monitors designed to warn personnel of potential dangers.

Combustible gases and vapors such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and hydrogen sulfide, which can be fatal in sufficiently high doses are monitored by the company’s X-am 2500 portable gas detectors, which will be deployed on and offshore.

Dräger designs and manufactures the sensors, which have a five-year warranty.

A testing and calibration station is also supplied which manages maintenance of the equipment, removing the need to return equipment to shore. The Dräger X-dock allows personal gas monitors to be tested in less than 15 seconds.

Lawrie Kerr, sales manager, Dräger Marine & Offshore, said: “These contracts demonstrate the value our technologies offer in protecting personnel in oil & gas, as operators continue to invest in safety as one of their top priorities in exploration and production.”

Kerr added: “As new projects get underway, and efforts to maximize recovery from existing assets are developed, we continue to invest in research and development which will deliver further advances in life-saving technology for the industry.”
