“The innovative Phenolic FRP composite structural products, including MARRS® OFFSHORE handrails, access structures, ladders, safety gates and grating have been designed, supplied, and installed extensively throughout the BP Clair Ridge project, all performing beyond expectations throughout fabrication, and passing Lloyds Class Project testing. The team also provided expert technical and engineering services as part of a packaged-solution from design to completion.
The FRP products successfully provided a cost effective, corrosion resistant alternative solution to steel equivalents and made a significant contribution towards critical weight saving objectives. ” – Lead Topside Structural Engineer, BP
