Flare Stack Refurbishment – Tartan Oil Platform
Client: Talisman Energy (UK)
Scope: Flare Stack Refurbishment – Tartan Oil Platform
Date: August 2008
Products: RA 900
The offshore Oil Platform required the flare stack to be re-coated whilst in operation. The original TSA specification had broken down but would not be feasible as an on-site repair system.
Working at height and high substrate temperatures, combined with the fact no blasting was permitted, made the project extremely difficult.
Two coats of Hot-cote™ RA 900 silicon hybrid high temperature rust tolerant system @ 80µ per coat by brush and roller was applied.
The technical benefits offered by this system ensured that the work was carried out on time, within budget and with no major delays. Since this project has been completed, similar areas have been specified using Hot-cote™ RA 900 series.
• No blasting required
• No major delays to program
• Reduced cost of plant and equipment
• Reduced H&S and Fire Precaution
• Chemco system will protect the steel substrate in excess of 10 years
