Roxtec has worked with Total E&P on the multi million pound refurbishment of a laboratory at the 220 acre St Fergus Gas Terminal based 60 miles north of Aberdeen. The terminal receives natural gas from 20 North Sea fields, which supply up to 30% of the UK’s gas. The terminal’s laboratory facility tests and monitors the various gases coming through the pipeline. For the project, the company supplied special multi cable transit seals to the laboratory with each transit protecting up to ten power or data cables.

Graham O’Hare, UK managing director, said: “The seals will protect the cables at the point they enter the laboratory from a range of hazards including flooding, fire and explosion. This plays a key role in protecting the safety of the building, its assets and critically the people working in the laboratory in case of accident. Moreover the seals ensure that the services entering the laboratory structure are properly airtight and sealed.”
