Herndon, VA (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
Temeku Technologies, Inc. (http://www.TemekuTech.com) is launching its innovative and novel MadmatTM material at Offshore Technologies Conference (OTC) 2012 in Houston, TX. On the heels of its recent patent award, the company seeks to mitigate the risk of fire to personnel and critical infrastructure, such as offshore rigs, refineries, and transfer stations across the oil and gas industry.
Madmat is a metallic decking material that is easily installed onto existing platforms to mitigate fire risk. When flaming liquids spill onto the material, the fire is immediately extinguished. Its patented design starves the burning liquid of the oxygen it needs to burn. Additionally, Madmat collects and contains the spill and has superior non-skid properties. Madmat’s unique benefits are unmatched by any material in the marketplace.
“Producing petroleum, natural gas, and refined products can certainly be a dangerous process. But, by installing Madmat around high-risk areas on rigs and at refineries, operators can mitigate the risk of fires and the resulting losses to personnel, the environment and critical equipment,” says Dr. Christopher Lehman, COO of Temeku Technologies. “Beyond the safety implications, Madmat’s design contains spills, preserving the environment and streamlining operations.”
Madmat has been created and refined over years of research and development, and has been tested successfully aboard the US Navy’s research and development test vessel, the ex-USS SHADWELL. With Madmat installed on the ship’s deck, dangerous flight deck fires that posed a hazard with conventional decking materials were extinguished immediately.
Madmat is currently entering commercial production, and will be available for delivery and installation in June 2012.
