Specialist ventilation built specifically for diverse situations offshore
Offshore platforms are associated with numerous fan applications from production and drilling areas, to power generation, accommodation and manned areas. These diverse situations demand that our fans provide the right solution to operational requirements and environmental conditions whilst having the flexibility to ensure the optimal use of space and power.
Offshore, Oil and Gas Applications
Gas Turbine Enclosures
Elta Fans are used to ventilating gas turbine enclosures to reduce the risk of the build-up of explosive gases, whilst the enclosure is on standby or during start up. They also maintain the temperature within the enclosure to ensure the turbine is operating at the optimum temperature.
Compressor Cooling Enclosures
Modern acoustic enclosures, housing generators and compressor equipment are designed to be as compact as possible. This results in high levels of resistance to circulating airflow inside the enclosure.
Production and Drilling Platforms
To enable drilling and then production to commence, an offshore installation relies entirely on producing its own energy supply to operate. Therefore, power generation has one of the largest priorities for equipment and space on the rig and has substantial ventilation requirements.
