Offshore Painting

The major constraint with painting offshore is the ability to access structures. Ofserv’s vast experience in gaining access and working in various environments enables us to offer the most efficient and cost-effective solution to a particular environment.

Ofserv has painted flares, jack up legs, helidecks, FPSO’s and VLCC ballast tanks without using traditional scaffolding techniques.

These innovative solutions have minimized downtime and interference with routine operations.

Surface Preparation

Ultra High Water Blasting

Ofserv supplies qualified blasting crews and UHP water blasters. This ensures continuous service of the machines as well as high production rates.

Dry Grit Blasting

Traditional methods of surface preparation are efficiently handled by Ofserv operators giving blast profiles for inspecting any location.

Mechanical Preparation

Localized repairs and time constraints call for innovative solutions. Ofserv crews are able to mobilize and access platforms, rigs and ships within short notice anywhere in the world. With modern surface tolerant coatings, a high quality project is guaranteed.
