WELDING HABITAT SYSTEM
The WICH System is a patented, versatile, customisable system that is designed to facilitate hot work such as welding in hazardous areas offshore or onshore.
The system isolates ignition sources that are generated from hot work operations taking place inside the Hot work Safety Enclosure (HSE) from any potentially flammable gases that may exist outside the HSE.
Essentially, the overpressure in a WICH System is used to prevent penetration of potentially explosive substances and gases, allowing hot work to be carried out in areas otherwise considered hazardous, thus avoiding expensive and unnecessary shutdown of the plant.
The WICH System is designed based on flexibility in mind, which helps facilitate hot work better. It comes in versatile designs, various sizes, is able to fit in any space and each part is easily transported. The use of scaffolding and pliable covering also allow the system to be built around pillars and other obstacles
