In an oil rig emergency, every minute counts. If the worst comes to the worst, the crew should get out quickly. The ALBE MES module was developed for these evacuation cases. All crew members can quickly reach the life rafts via the evacuation chute and get to safety.
ALBE MES is designed for extreme standards and designed so that all functions are ensured even if the offshore on-board systems (e.g. electricity) fail. The stable housing is according to Fire class A60 insulated.
Personnel capacity, material of the chute or the number of life rafts are taken into account exactly according to the operating conditions. The rescue module can be painted in any color.
Only the ALBE claim is unchangeable Safety - Made in Germany.
It can be operated intuitively and can be used by any person in an emergency in no time at all.
2. Motor winch
The winch lowers the evacuation unit incl. rescue chute in a controlled but rapid manner, so that the system is ready for use in a few seconds, even if the power supply fails.
3. Evacuation chute
Spiral geometry of the chute allows a fixed maximum user sliding speed to reduce the risk of injury. Stainless steel stabilising rings connected to a hose and additional mesh.
4. Life rafts
Opening of the rafts, one after the other or synchronously as required.
5. Landing platform
The landing platform is lowered into the water together along with the chute and life rafts in case of an emergency. At contact with water the landing platform inflates within 30 seconds
6. Evacuation Body
Structurally-reinforced enclosure; insulated according to fire protection class A60
World's fastest and most efficient evacuation chute
- Spiral geometry for fixed maximum sliding speed
- Evacuation of injured or unconscious crew member possible
- Fully enclosed evacuation chute with microclimate (protection against cold, heat, stress reduction
- Evacuation independent of clothing
- The chute is stabilised by stainless steel rings and additional mesh fabric
Chute lengthup to 150 m
Rescue chute made of highly durable aramid. Delivery up to a length of 150 m. Colour-coded segments provide guidance for controlled descent into the life raft.
Fire-resistant up to +480 ° C
Fire-resistant chute material protects against burns during use, the enclosure is fully insulated against heat.
Frost-resistant to -65 ° C
Key components of the ALBE MES system are heated and enable smooth use in polar regions.
Water and ice
ALBE MES is designed for different exit scenarios. Landing of the platform is possible on water, ice or on possibly waiting ships.
ALBE MES can be modified with a wide range of options and functions and can be tailored perfectly to customer-specific requirements.
Best service - all over the world
- Worldwide inspections of the installed modules by trained partners and in-house technicians
- Individual service contracts and concepts
- Service of all ALBE systems without lowering the components
ALBE Engineering has been closely associated with the marine sector for more than 35 years. For around 20 years, ALBE has been developing and building highly specialized evacuation systems and making a decisive contribution to occupational safety on offshore platforms for oil and gas production.
The solutions globally recognized are completely designed and manufactured in Germany. Safety - Made in Germany.
