Brand new ways of working with no production disruption in ATEX environments

Introduction to Cold Pad

Cold Pad provides durable composite bonding & fastening solutions to facilitate structural maintenance, retrofit & upgrade operations while reducing OPEX by eradicating associated costs. They deliver unique, safe, painless, and non-intrusive cold works with limitless applications for all steel and concrete structures in power generation, hydrogen value chain, offshore wind turbines, shipping, and Oil & Gas storage facilities.

FPSO & FSO operations require regular works on tertiary steel, like cable trays, pipe supports, skids, ladders, handrails, etc. While such jobs would be easy through hot works in most industries, the typical FPSO explosive environment raises challenges.

Indeed, welded solutions may impact safety and production, sometimes even require paint touch-up on the back of the structures and confined space entry.

Side costs end up costing more than the equipment itself!
