Aberdeen-based Aiken Group has announced that a key product from its newly-launched division has gained important industry certification.

The company’s new Welhab division focuses on specialist habitats and its innovative ‘hot works habitat’ has just been DNV GL 2.7.2 certified. 

The new product, believed to be the first of its kind, provides a better working environment which has flexibility and durability at its core.  All components are sourced via approved vendors and carry the appropriate qualifications to ensure ATEX compliance and certification.  

The new hot works habitat from Welhab features leading-edge equipment backed and delivered by highly skilled personnel.  They can provide turnkey solutions from offshore survey through the bespoke design process to fast, simple installation and thorough testing to facilitate a safe working location within hazardous areas.

An Aiken Group spokeswoman explained: “Today’s challenge is to work more safely in high risk areas, and reduce crew size and time lost by maintenance and project teams during shutdown and production work phases. 

“This flexible technology ensures a safe and efficient method of carrying out potentially dangerous activities in any shape or size of area, incorporating all fixtures, piping and obstacles.”

The Aiken Group provides services across a wide range of disciplines and applications, covering both fixed and floating installations.
