On the one hand, temporary life lines are installed for its own or third-party use. Services of this kind allow works to be carried out where the operator needs to ensure work is done safely and be secured to a life line. Installations can be via scaffolding, a lifting platform or done progressively as the vertical works are carried out upwards or horizontally. These temporary life lines are removed when the operator finishes working.
An example of temporary life lines installation for Depisa’s own use can be seen in the anticorrosion tasks performed on unprotected covering, which require the prior installation of a life line.
Another service Depisa provides is the assembly and maintenance of fixed life lines. Only a certified operator can assemble such protection equipment, which must be periodically reviewed by qualified personnel.
In addition to the assembly and maintenance of life lines, other services were carried out, including anti-corrosion coating works for high-rise equipment and structures. A recent example is the brushing and painting works in the torch shaft of the Castellón BP Oil refinery 2017 General Shutdown.
Another type of vertical work is the placing of information panels in difficult access areas or large-scale advertising, such as those in the coking plant at the BP Oil refinery.
The Levante Delegation has several ANETVA-certified, specialised vertical work teams.
