Case Study

LINDEN COMANSA – signaling devices for tower cranes on offshore drilling rigs

The best performance in extreme conditions.

The application

While an oil platform is a fixed installation for producing oil/gas, a rig is a moveable installation for drilling wells that oil/gas can (hopefully) be produced from. On a platform there is very little space. Cranes are used for moving things around to make best use of it. They are designed and engineered to operate in the most severe ambient conditions.

When it comes to equipping the cranes with audible and visual signaling devices, safety, reliability and durability are equally high requirements. In this project – an offshore drilling rig near Dubai – Comansa had to equip 17 cranes with visual alarms for aircaft warning and helicopter landing plus audible alarms for emergency alert.
