Mermaid Siam is a DNV Classed DP2 construction support barge featuring an IMCA-compliant 10-man single bell saturation diving system rated to 300m water depth. The vessel currently operates in the Middle East Region.

MSMIn September 2014, Mermaid Siam was in an urgent need for replacing its helideck perimeter nets. Frictape sales team replied to the request quickly, and with a help from the vessel, Frictape designed and manufactured Perimeter Safety Nets  for Mermaid Siam with a very fast schedule in September 2014. The whole process from the custom-made nets to the finished product delivery from Finland to United Arab Emirates was completed in two weeks.

Mr. Pablo Silva, Mermaid Siam Chief Officer, describes:  “We had a great response and support from the Frictape team during all the project, specially because our project was done in a extremely short notice.”

Mr. Silva had heard about Frictape Perimeter Nets from a colleague who had previous experience with this type of netting. Through Frictape website, Mr. Silva was able to gain more information about Frictape and to compare it with other net types.  Frictape industry certifications and global customer base supported also Frictape selection; “Because of the fact that the product is properly supported by different Classification societies (as DNV) and after made a research, it was found that the netting is widely used in the offshore industry,” explains Mr. Silva the selection. “I would definitely recommend Frictape to other helidecks, after been dealing with other kind of net mesh (e.g. wire mesh), we found that the product is way better than any other type” he concludes.

Mr. Silva had also familiarized himself with Frictape Testing Services and commented: “Another great advantage of Frictape is that the “drop test” is not necessary as the manufacturer is able to provide a “sample breaking test” for the netting on yearly basis by using the samples attached to the delivered product.”

I would definitely recommend Frictape to other helidecks, after been dealing with other kind of net mesh (e.g. wire mesh), we found that the product is way better than any other type.
