About the Project


Locker Heatshields used as an amazing façade.

Locker Radiant Heatshielding is now available with potentially limitless visuals by way of partnership with Locker Architectural. The perfect marriage of Locker Heatshielding functionality and Locker Architectural aesthetics, with engineering collaboration from both.

With over 40 years successful use in the offshore industry to protect people and equipment from radiant heat, Locker were approached by Galliford Try (now Vistry Partnerships) to provide a bespoke solution that would provide protection for personnel and infrastructure from the effects of a fire scenario at the adjacent processing plant, whilst also providing something that would also be aesthetically pleasing to look at.

The desired protection could easily have been provided with Lockers standard Heatshield range of panels but would have been unsightly, being a purely industrial product.

With a vast amount of experience in Architectural facades Locker were able to incorporate our standard offshore product the Mini Heatshield with a layer of image perf to provide a decorative architectural image perforated façade with a practical application.

Standing at 4m in height the Heatshield fence which replaced the existing 2m high acoustic fence provides an excellent practical solution allowing for safe occupation of the new housing estate whilst also providing an attractive feature for the occupants.

The engineering ensure that the Locker offshore heatshields could be used with ‘image perf’ panels was challenging. The correct open area had to be found so as to ensure that the performance of the Heatshields was not compromised.

Image perf’ has almost limitless possibilities and can replicate most pictures, company logos or photographs purely by using hundreds or even thousands of varying sized hole diameters and pixilation and is available from 0.5mm to 3mm thick.

Working with their Architectural counterparts Locker Heatshielding were able to offer a full turnkey solution, supplying not only the vast amount of 3m long Heatshield panels, but also providing the design of a bespoke support structure and installation of the panels.

The Heatshield wall is constructed in 3m wide sections, supported by 200mm SHS sections with a mounting flange plate which is bolted back to the cast in anchors. The support structure has been designed and verified by our engineers to accommodate both the weight of the panels and the associated wind loads. The structural integrity of the proposed Heatshield fence was independently verified by a structural engineer.

Locker Heatshields have undergone extensive testing at independent N.A.M.A.S. approved laboratories and, with a front face radiant heat up to 60kW/m², the resultant radiant heat reduction recorded at a distance of 150mm behind the Heatshield was in excess of 83%.

Further details are available on request.

The combination of the Locker Heatshield and Architectural façade has huge potential for use in both industrial and commercial applications such as service stations and fuel storage/power generator enclosures to name but a few.

About the Project


Galebreaker Industrial Fabric Heat Shielding installed at Hakuryu 10 rig, Singapore for client K2 Velosi.

25 shields were fitted, covering an area of 1,100 square metres. The average panel size used was 42.8 sqm. Installation was straight-forward due to the quality of the sub-frame built by the client.

About the Project


The FPSO Capixaba is currently on the Cachalote Field offshore Brazil.

Formerly on the Golfinho field, it was taken off station and refurbished to suit the new location.

Locker Heatshielding were commissioned by Single Buoy Moorings Inc. in 2005 to provide radiant Heatshields for the turret area of the FPSO Capixaba for its new offshore Brazil position.

Single Skin Ladder type Heatshields were installed on the side of the FPSO turret area. They protect both the electrical control cabinets and personnel accessing these areas, from the effects of radiant heat during flaring off of waste hydrocarbons.

The Single Ladder Heatshields were used in this location for their excellent radiant heat reduction capabilities, along with the inherent strength, visibility and ventilation they provide.

About the Project


The FPSO Kikeh is currently located 120km northwest of the island of Labuan, offshore Sabah, East Malaysia in water depths of around 1,300m.

The FPSO is operated by Murphy Sabah Oil Company on behalf of Partner Petronas Carigali. Locker Heatshielding were commissioned by Single Buoy Moorings Inc. in 2007 to provide radiant Heatshields for the external turret area of the FPSO.

At the time of construction the vessel had the largest external turret to date and was the first Malaysian FPSO in the SBM fleet.

Deliverables


Single Skin Ladder type Heatshields were installed on the front face of the FPSO turret area facing towards the flare boom as well as around the crown block area including the roof area.

The Heatshields are used to protect both personnel and key equipment from the effects of radiant heat from the flaring of excess hydrocarbons. The Single Skin Ladder Heatshields were used in this location for their excellent radiant heat reduction capabilities, along with the inherent strength, visibility and ventilation they provide along with the ability to span large distances.

About the Project


The UK North Sea Forties field underwent a major refurbishment in 2007. The offshore flare platforms required replacing as they had been in situ since installation of the platforms in 1976.

Locker Heatshielding were contracted by Amec to provide replacement Heatshield panels for the Forties Alpha flare platform to protect the Flare deck structure from elevated temperatures.

Due to the relatively complex shape of the replacement flare platforms, the Heatshield panels had to be individually designed with a number of complex shapes incorporated. The flare deck shields also had to fit closely around the new flare tip pipes to prevent any ingress of radiant heat through the flare deck.

The replacement flare platform was built on the quayside in Aberdeen and the shields fitted before the entire structure was transported offsite.

The existing flare platform was then removed, and the new platform lifted into place as a complete unit, significantly reducing the installation downtime.
