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:

  • Ocean Rig Corcovado

  • Las Palmas

  • 2019

Dear Frictape team,

Our helideck passed the test – I would like to take the opportunity to thank the whole team for the prompt and continuous support during the testing that made this success possible after some great difficulties in the beginning.

I will definitely pass my greatest recommendations for our whole fleet to trust in your services also in the future. Ben has definitely earned one Corona at the airport. Special thanks to him for his patience.

Looking forward to do business with you again soon.

Kind regards,

Juhani Makela
