The low density of aluminium makes Alphastrut more than 50% lighter than steel alternatives, meaning significant weight and cost savings can be achieved.
Minimising the weight of structures such as LQ and LER modules on offshore platforms and FPSOs is a top priority for oil companies and their contractors. By reducing the weight of ‘non-production’ facilities on the platform, oil companies can maximise the amount of revenue-generating extraction and production kit onboard.
Choosing lightweight components also reduces installation and shipping costs, cuts programme times and improves safety.
The Alphastrut aluminium raised floor support system and cable management system is a revolutionary, lightweight, load-bearing alternative to conventional steel support frameworks.
