Whether you need cold or hot lay-up support, we’ve got you covered

Our expert engineers will scope out your site to devise a solution that is cost-effective while meeting all your project requirements. 

Cold lay-up support:

Keep equipment in optimum condition with temporary power generators and specialist heating and drying. Our industrial dehumidifiers can be installed to achieve sufficient air circulation throughout controlled spaces and major machinery.

Hot lay-up support:

Our portable diesel generators offer a cost-effective means to provide on-board power while a ship or rig is laid-up. These generators can also be quickly stepped up or down, providing an efficient and scalable way to meet fluctuating demand.

Key applications

  • Auxiliary and back-up power: Including generators to provide auxiliary power, onboard reserve power or emergency power for all rig and vessel requirements.
  • Load testing: Including simulation of adverse environmental conditions for equipment testing, and FPSO (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading) vessel load testing.
  • Temperature Control: Including controlled dehumidification to prevent corrosion damage, and temperature control equipment to maintain a ship's HVAC system in dry docks.
