Hempstead, Texas-based oil and gas equipment maker Logan Industries has been awarded a contract to manufacture a set of safety cages to keep offshore technicians safe while inspecting subsea connectors on blowout preventers (BOPs) while on deck.
Logan said the cage will be designed to protect the safety of technicians working near the BOP, in the rare event that the load should accidentally drop.
"The safety cage is designed to absorb and stop a falling load of up to 450,000 lbs. Logan’s engineering team used their expertise in basic physics and engineering principles to come up with a solution that makes their customer’s operation more efficient and safer," Logan said.
Dean Carey, the technical director, Logan Industries, said, “We have worked for this customer in various capacities over the last 18 years and this safety cage project award demonstrates the ongoing trust that our customers place in our experience, knowledge, and ingenuity to dream up solutions for unique projects.”
Logan did not say who the client was.
The company will engineer and manufacture the safety cage in its Hempstead, Texas, facility. Manufacture, installation, and commissioning is scheduled for completion in Q1 2021.
