There are several ways to approach a job. And the KAEFER way can sometimes start from an unusual vantage point, from bottom upwards.
At the Dolphin Energy Offshore Platforms DOL1 & DOL2 in Qatar, the challenge was to finding way to do a complete re-paint of the Flare Bridge Structure (from platform to flare stack), Helideck, Liquid Burner Bridge, Flare/Liquid Burner Piping, and Test Separator (complete external painting for DOL1). Normally this would involve installing a complex set of scaffolding from the bottom upwards which was the big challenge and needs a lot of time and effort. This goes to show how approaching a challenge from different perspective and using KAEFER thinking can save money, time and improve performance as well.

Three steps for durable coating solutions

1. Analysis of media and environment where the steel structure is placed
2. Specification of appropriate coating system, including quality of surface preparation and selection of suitable coating process to suit specific project demands
3. Execution of coating application by trained and skilled staff under supervision of experienced coating inspectors for stringent QA/QC
