Offshore / Maritime Winterization

Challenges in Arctic Conditions

Arctic exploration holds high risks due to extreme weather conditions and limited navigational and support infrastructure. Sea spray icing on arctic oil and gas rigs or maritime vessels threatens operations by blocking essential equipment, and compromises structural stability due to ice build-up. Personnel safety is jeopardized as the crew are more prone to slipping, fatigue and hypothermia.

nVent RAYCHEM is a trusted name for maritime safety solutions involving electrical heat tracing. 

Our anti-icing and de-icing solutions are lightweight for easy installation, energy-efficient, reliable in operation, comply with maritime health and safety regulations and are certified for use in hazardous areas.

Typical winterization applications include:

  • Emergency walkways, stairs, handrails, doors
  • Helidecks and lifeboats
  • Fire and communication equipment
