For many projects, Lifestream travels worldwide to the site of use of our water purification equipment. This may be to start up or train operators on new systems. It may also be to upgrade or service older systems, which may have been in operation for up to 19 years. These travelers must be a hearty bunch. Arrival on oil platforms may mean swinging on a rope from a heaving shore boat onto a grate and up stories of stairs. They are advised not to look down at the churning water below.
They may have to be prequalified to arrive as our engineer was to attend our start up on the BP Lan Tay platform off the coast of Vietnam. First he went to platform emergency helicopter evacuation training in Singapore which included simulation in a pool. He spent his 2 weeks on the platform fighting a severe ear infection from the experience.
Servicing a desalination system on board a cruise ship in Alaska resulted in extra duties when a fire on board occurred and everyone was evacuated. Lifestream’s engineer was able to offer an extra helping hand to many disoriented elderly passengers getting to lifeboats when the fire alarm system failed.
Post 911, security is fierce to enter military bases, shipyards and ports where Lifestream is working to service our systems on vessels. Sometimes it makes customs look like child’s play.
Stranded and waiting out an erupting volcano, flying very low in very small planes in bad weather over remote Alaska while sharing a ride with the local Eskimos, make arriving home even days late a welcome return.
Lifestream manufactures and services desalination systems for use on oil drilling platforms, and for the marine industry including navies and coast guards in many countries. Land based systems from 200 gallon/day to 1 million gallons/day are supplied for a variety of industries.
