Hertel signs contract with BP for Blast Resistant Office Building
Hertel recently signed a contract with BP for the manufacturing and installation of a Blast Resistant Office Building for their Rotterdam refinery.
The Blast Resistant Office Building comprises a number of Blast Resistant Modules (BRM’s) which are joined on site. Delivery will be within a short timeframe.
The building will be similar to the unit that was successfully designed and delivered by Hertel D&O to the BP refinery in 2008.
As a solution to the increasing need for safety, economization and work-efficiency in explosion exposed areas, Hertel D&O has engineered a standard solution for BRM’s. A BRM provides the ultimate solution for workers safety and equipment protection. By providing a safe place within the process area, the operations can be accomplished in an efficient manner.
The BRM can also be customized to suit any specific needs. Whether the BRM has to serve as office-, sanitary-, storage- or work unit, all necessary furnishings and equipment required for any project can be provided. The BRM is also equipped with fire resistant doors and windows. Both standard and customized BRM’s can be outfitted with all provisions such as HVAC, Electrical, Sewage- and potable water systems.
Blast load resistance up to 14 PSI can be achieved and the specifications meet or exceed ASCE, API and AESC standards. Fragment impact resistance of external walls is up to 6 inch flanges.
