Less than 24 hours after Hurricane Ida reached the coast of La., trucks were leaving Tideland Signal’s factory loaded with solar powered marine beacons and fog signals desperately needed to mark the Gulf Coast’s vital offshore oil wells

Emergency spares, sent to replace existing equipment damaged during the hurricane, arrived at coastal staging areas ready for immediate deployment well before the coastal helicopter and workboat fleets were set to depart offshore.

Tideland Signal factories in Texas and Louisiana are working round the clock to ensure  additional equipment is ready for immediate delivery as the crews start to learn the real effect of Hurricane Ida.
