Bilfinger Salamis UK offers an advanced habitat system, which features an innovative safety control system.
This system allows us to provide one of the safest habitat systems available.
The flexible system can be constructed around obstacles such as pipework, racks and beams. A lightweight airlock also allows personnel to move in and out of the habitat without losing pressure from the main enclosure, optimising safety. The emergency escape allows a secondary escape route.
