Offshore staff

HOUSTONTideland Signal has supplied Petrofac with Syncrolan LED light stations and fog signals to mark the Kittiwake platform in the central North Sea 160 km (100 mi) northeast of Aberdeen, UK.

The Tideland warning systems for Kittiwake include LED main and secondary lights, fog signals, and LED subsidiary lights, with both central controls and a remote control panel, all supported by backup batteries housed in an Ex-rated battery box. A fog detector activates the fog signal automatically when visibility falls below a pre-set norm.

Tideland has also supplied a remote monitoring panel that allows all the elements of the package to be controlled remotely in the event of severe weather, maintenance periods, or other eventualities.

The Kittiwake platform is jointly owned by EnQuest and Dana. Petrofac is the duty holder and operator on behalf of EnQuest.
