Offshore Safety Equipment
Billy Pugh Company offers Offshore Safety Equipment, Marine Safety Equipment, Safety Training and Practices/Inspections, X-904 Personnel Transfer Baskets, Transfer Nets, Life Rescue Rings, Buoys and more.
We do not recommend refurbishing personnel nets/ baskets with the exception of the X-904. Personnel baskets are designed to last in the field 1-2 years depending on the frequency of their use. As an example, most shallow water operations both drilling and production use their personnel basket frequently and sometimes even daily. These units should be replaced annually. Operations that transfer personnel via crane less frequently (such as those in deeper water who utilize helicopters more often) can replace their personnel basket after 2 years of use- or if the net/basket fails inspection. *It is not cost effective or recommended to refurbish these baskets in either scenario.
Many BPC customers require this additional 3rd party certification. It is an extra guarantee that our personnel transfer devices are manufactured with a high level of quality and that the product designs has been evaluated and tested.
