Our Work


Our team supplied, shipped and safely completed the installation of marine approved insulation of the electrical room (25m²) in within 4 days. They did the full insulation by:

  • Grinding paint where pins needed to be welded.
  • Weld pins onto the steel deck head.
  • Primer paint touch ups. 
  • Install Rockwool slabs on flat surface and on stiffeners w/A-60 standards.
  • Put covering caps to secure the insulation.
  • Cover and joins slabs by using silver tape.

SPTsa can provide to each customer turn key solution to room / area conversion.
On the DS8, the project was the reconfiguration of several rooms to optimize space and meet the customer’s wishes and expectations.
The work started on board with site survey, gathering all necessary information. Then, at SPTsa with engineering and design, generating the best general arrangement and lay out.
Once all the drawing completed and approved by the client, SPTsa handled procurement, pre-assembly of all material and equipment.
The team was then sent offshore to perform job, by removing existing and outfitting new furniture.


On this busy month of July, 2 others members of SPTsa team went offshore on the Ensco 109 oil rig to do some cladding on external engine exhaust pipes. Project was complex, because performed during operation, involving craning and deck jobs.

SPTsa ensures that, for each project, qualified & trained personnel able to work offshore is molilized. Our staff has access to certified & continuous training, allowing them to work onboards rigs or drillships.
