Donut Cost comparison

During periods of economic uncertainty and poor Oil prices, DONUT International Ltd has the perfect solution to reduce your CAPEX & OPEX expenditure with our DONUT personal Controlled descent device - the industry standard for escape to sea applications.

In a recent study, we identified that by replacing Rope-Ladders with DONUT units on a typical installation, operators can make significant savings when total life-cycle costs are taken into consideration. The below example highlights the savings that can be made, whilst benefitting from the numerous & substantial technical advantages that DONUT provides.

Cost comparison example

This example is based on data provided by an offshore operator for a typical Offshore Installation’s escape requirements, showing direct cost comparison for:-

1.0 100 x Donut Descent Devices - Every worker to have access to their own personal Device. The Units are designed as an escape-to-liferaft system for worker safety. The model specified allows for a safe escape from 32 mtr platform height (longer lengths are available). The units have a life expectancy of over 25 years.

2.0 16 x Rope Ladders - The 100 Donut Devices would be a replacement for just 16 Rope Ladders that, due to rapid degradation, require replacement every 9 months. (Data obtained from an offshore operator).
