In previous blog posts, we have covered what IR windows are, what value they bring and a brief run through of what you get with our very own range of CorDEX IW infrared windows.
Now we want to give you a real life example of our windows in action!
Pacific Drilling chose to use the CorDEX IW3000 and IW4000 range of infrared windows in both their drillships – Pacific Khamsin and Pacific Bora. The IR windows met the 11kV transformer rating needs.
Geo Therm Ltd (a UK offshore oil and gas inspection and service company) were contracted to fit the windows, and successfully installed more than 240 units per vessel in less than eight days, using a two-man team of offshore service technicians.
In servicing Pacific Drilling’s fleet of high-specification, ultra-deepwater drillships, Geo Therm Ltd’s professional installation service team retrofit the CorDEX IW range of infrared window orders. This helps towards the performance of the annual offshore electrical thermographic survey inspections on the various rig-wide switchboards and HV transformers.
As you can see, our range of IR windows are widely used and provide a valuable service to Pacific Drilling.
