Another Offshore Platform Gets ClearShield® Glass Protection!

Another Offshore Platform Gets ClearShield® Glass Protection!

Stein Solli OverflateXperten (SSOX), Ritec’s official Marketing Partner in Norway, have extensive experience when it comes to applying the ClearShield Eco-System® for glass renovation, ‘non-stick’ protection and maintenance. SSOX particularly specialise in the offshore sector, with many years of experience using the System to treat glass on North Sea oil rigs and platforms.

Recently SSOX travelled to Snorre A, an integrated oil production, drilling and quarters (PDQ) unit floating in the Norwegian North Sea, moored to the seabed by steel tethers. SSOX were tasked to renovate and protect glass on this facility with the ClearShield Eco-System®. Specifying the System for offshore environments is a no-brainer and many installations in the North Sea already benefit from ClearShield® ‘non-stick’, easy-clean protection.

This is because ordinary glass surfaces in these harsh conditions are subjected to oil and mud splatter which can be extremely difficult or even impossible to remove using conventional cleaning methods. It is imperative glass is kept clean as poor visibility can potentially result in accidents. The Health & Safety Executive has the power to shut down any facility deemed unsafe which can cost an oil rig on average £76,000 / $100,000 a day.

So thanks to SSOX and the award-winning ClearShield Eco-System®, operatives on the Snorre A facility now have more peace of mind after the existing glass surfaces were upgraded in situ to higher performance ClearShield Eco-Glass®. The protected surface resists all kinds of contaminants, resulting in significantly less build-up and maximises visibility. The glass is easier to clean and keep clean too. In sum, cost-effective ClearShield Eco-System® relieves stress when it comes to glass cleaning and can help to avoid expensive shutdowns.
