Frictape Perimeter Nets were installed to Fugro Synergy in January 2015. Two Frictape service technicians completed the installation in 4 working days in Tuzla, Turkey. Job included removal of the old helideck perimeter nets and installation of new Frictape nets.

“Having read all information on Frictape website, I do believe that this kind of safety net is reliable, good quality and durable. From maintenance point of view, Frictape is more advantageous than stainless steel net. Additionally, I did select Frictape because I believed that it would last longer than stainless steel safety net and HCA inspector highly recommended Frictape.” comments Fugro Synergy Master Mr. Dariusz Buda about Frictape.

“Frictape technicians Mr. Adrian Pollard and Olli Koiso-Kanttila made a great job! They were always proceeding in safe and efficient manner. If I was ever asked for recommendations, I would always highly recommend Frictape and their technicians,”  Mr. Buda continues.

Frictape service technicians appreciated the good working culture of Fugro Synergy too;

“We felt very welcomed on board and the whole crew treated us well. Good team sprit on board always helps us to complete our job efficiently,” says Frictape technician Mr. Olli Koiso-Kanttila.

“The weather always provides us with some extra challenge, but we managed to complete the job in just 4 working days despite rainy and windy conditions,“ describes Mr. Koiso-Kanttila.

We visited Transocean Corcovado in January 2019 to carry out helideck friction testing.  The deck was recently surfaced with new high friction coating and as it often happens with profiled aluminium helidecks, it did not meet the friction requirements when we tested it. In cooperation with the crew, our technician carrying out the friction testing and Frictape team at the office, we found ways to further treat the surface to meet the friction requirements. Afterwards we received this nice message:
