Project Description


AMS was awarded the contract to design and supply drill floor matting packages for both of Frigstad Offshores new D90 Semi-submersible rigs.  Extensive design options were included in the package to enhance the visual aspect of redzones and high risk areas around the rotary table as well as the escape route which included our glow in the dark polymer for the directional arrows.  Also, included throughout the drill floor is our unique drainage mat design ensuring trip hazards were eliminated without restricting the drains.
