Roxtec to supply Australia’s biggest gas project
Cable and pipe seal manufacturer Roxtec is undertaking a contract to supply materials to one of the world’s biggest gas developments, the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project, on Barrow Island, Western Australia.
Roxtec UK managing director Graham O’Hare said Roxtec’s global operation played a key role in winning the contract and co-ordinating Roxtec’s supply from its offices around the world.
“This is a prestigious project for Roxtec to work on and it demonstrates our expertise in the oil and gas sector,” he said. “Specifically we supplied cable seals with an in-built electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) system to protect the plant’s electrical systems. The seals are installed in the modular instrumentation buildings and they will help ensure the safe operations of control systems.”
Mr O’Hare said Roxtec had also supplied Ex rated seals (ATEX Directive compliant) for use in Hazardous Areas as well as cable and pipe penetrations for the blast walls and floors in the substations.
“Our products were chosen as they are rated to oil and gas industry blast load standards and DNV certified,” he said.
Mr O’Hare said the project also highlighted Roxtec’s ability to work across the world.
“Our global presence enables us to service an international project like this efficiently and effectively.”
