Tideland Signal will be showing its comprehensive range of aids to navigation (AtoN) equipment and systems for offshore oil and gas platforms, on stand 4C103 at Offshore Europe 2013 in Aberdeen from September 3-6.

Tideland Signal has many years' experience protecting offshore installations of every type around the globe with AtoN lanterns, radar beacons, fog stations, solar power systems and AIS (Automatic Identification Systems).  Among the team manning the stand will be Andi Mohamadi of Tideland together with Stuart Smith and John Wadeson from Tideland’s sister company Dabbrook Services.

For Zone 1 hazardous area offshore oil and gas platforms, Tideland's latest LED-based Syncrolan system typically comprises an MLED-180-HI EX main light station with a range of 15 NM, secondary light with 10NM range and an MLED-150 EX subsidiary lantern, fog signal, back-up battery banks, and an alarm and monitor panel.  

Other highlights of the stand will include Tideland's highly successful SeaBeacon 2 System 6 dual-band racon, which has sold over 1,000 units around the world and the HeliLED status light system which provides a visual warning for incoming helicopters if there is a hazardous condition, such as a gas leak or a crane in the vicinity.  

SeaBeacon 2 System 6 is a frequency-agile racon available in versions certified for Zone 1, Zone 2 and for safe area use, providing dependable service to all marine radars including those with modern narrow band receivers.  SeaBeacon 2 System 6 offers unparalleled accuracy in frequency matching, consistent pulse-by-pulse response and advanced sidelobe suppression.  Sensitivity is -50dBm, eight times that of its competitors.

Dabbrook will highlight the hybrid systems which it designs and supplies, incorporating wind turbine and PV arrays together with the necessary support structures and charge control equipment. Dabbrook systems for Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas utilise Tideland Signal equipment including 90Wp and 180Wp Zone 1-certified PV modules manufactured in the UK, Exe battery boxes with lead acid or Ni-Cad batteries and Exd charge control panels with PWM and MPPT controllers.
