Well-Safe Guardian is an Earl & Wright Sedco 700 series drilling unit delivered in 1985 and has been operating on the UK continental shelf for more than 30 years. In August 2019 the rig came in to Nigg Energy Park on the Cromarty Firth. The fabric maintenance contract is being carried out by Access & Coatings, a division of Global Energy Group.

Offshore maintenance cost
Performing maintenance in an offshore environment can be as much as 10-20 times costlier than doing work in a yard environment. Limited surface treatment and high salinity combined with brush and roller application can be a challenge.
The world’s first NORSOK compliant maintenance system for brush and roller enables up to 40% time saving by achieving specified film thickness in just 3 coats.
Complete protection in 3 coats
Traditional maintenance of offshore installations requires 5-6 coats of paint to achieve specified film thickness. Coatings used for offshore maintenance are often engineered for new construction purposes, and airless spray application. With our new maintenance system specifically developed for brush and roller, it is easy to achieve the specified film thickness in only 3 coats. Fewer coats, same protection.
Extending maintenance intervals
Extending maintenance intervals of offshore installations is good business. Coatings only represent around 1% of the total cost of maintenance, and choosing our tailor-made maintenance products will save you money.
The world’s first NORSOK compliant maintenance system for brush and roller, will ensure a high quality barrier to prevent premature corrosion through high build and excellent flow properties.
