Marine Aluminium supplied the world’s first aluminium helideck in 1974 and has since delivered over 560 aluminium helidecks to projects worldwide. Our last major development is the winterization of helidecks with hot water. Our helideck hot water heating system is using excess heat from available heat resources on the vessel/platform. The helideck top profiles have slots for heating coils, allowing hot water to distribute heat evenly on the surface of the helideck. The system is approved by DNV GL.
The Helideck hot water heating system is an environmentally friendly solution compared to the alternative; electrical heat tracing. In addition the system is easy to install, has low material cost and low operation cost due to the energy input being excess heat from the vessel/platform system.
