Shell Perdido to Use Zentech's Aluminum Helideck

Zentech, Inc. announced that it is supplying an Astech enhanced safety aluminum helideck to Delta Engineering Corporation for use on the Shell Perdido Regional Host Spar. Zentech President Ramesh Maini explained "This is the first of its kind for use in the Gulf of Mexico on a US flag vessel."

The helideck features a patented, automatic fire suppression system that assures safer take-offs and landings. The helideck system, manufactured by Aluminium Offshore Pty. Ltd., has been approved by ABS, DNV, BV, Lloyds, and USCG. This and related models have already been installed on over 200 offshore structures and vessels worldwide. "The design offers cost, weight and maintainability advantages, as well as the very effective fire retardant system," said John Hanney, Area Director of United Technologies Sikorsky. The helideck includes a parking and landing area capable of accommodating two helicopters simultaneously.
