Containment Netting

Installation of netting can resolve a number of problems.

Multiple Work Parties

A common issue during shut down periods is the need for a large number of contractors to work in the same area.

Production or drilling shut downs are highly expensive and ideally all contractors involved in annual maintenance would be able to work at the same time – however there is an obvious risk caused by conflicting activities.

During the North Alwyn Drilling shut down in June 2010, Axiom successfully installed vertical and horizontal netting to protect personnel outside the derrick and on the drill floor whilst work took place at height inside the derrick.

The end result was a considerable saving in time and money for our client.

Work Positioning Netting for Under Deck Access

The same type of netting can be installed in a different fashion to allow rapid access to under deck areas by multiple work parties – after initial installation by the rope access team, the nets provide a work platform that is easily accessible to less specialist personnel.
