Offshore helidecks are essential to offshore safety and are important in getting crews and items to site in a fast and efficient way. To be able to fly to and from offshore locations in Brazil, you will need a helideck that complies with the regulatory requirements.
The NORMAM-27 standard in short
NORMAM-27 prescribes perimeter lights to outline the helideck and floodlights to light the centre of the deck. An illuminated windsock should be in place to inform helicopter traffic of the wind direction at all times. The status light prescribed in the regulations will be activated automatically by the fire and gas alarm system during an alarm. The status light will emit a flashing red light and will signal to helicopter traffic that immediate evasive action should be taken.
