Offshore Services

Abseilers are ideally suited to working on offshore installations and rigs. They provide great mobility and flexibility, and if properly trained, can access seemingly ‘inaccessible’ locations with ease.

Toprope artisans have been safely and efficiently working on offshore projects for the last twenty years. We have worked in 25 countries and all of our operators are offshore certified. We are proud of our accident-free record and are known for the exemplary quality of our work.

Offshore Painting

The major constraint with painting offshore is the ability to access structures. Toprope's vast experience in gaining access and working in a variety of environments enables us to offer the most efficient and cost-effective solutions to each particular environment.

Toprope has painted flares, jack-up legs, helidecks, FPSO's and VLCC ballast tanks without using traditional scaffolding techniques.

We employ innovative solutions that minimise downtime and interference with routine operations.

Surface Preparation

Ultra High Water Blasting

Toprope supplies qualified blasting crews and UHP water blasters. This ensures continuous service of the machines as well as high production rates.

Dry Grit Blasting

Traditional methods of surface preparation are efficiently handled by Toprope operators giving blast profiles for inspecting any location.

Mechanical Preparation

Localising repairs and managing time constraints calls for innovative solutions. Toprope crews are able to mobilize and access platforms, rigs and ships within short notice anywhere in the world. They use modern surface tolerant coatings to guarantee a high quality finish.


Toprope painters work in accordance with stringent quality control procedures to ensure the correct application and durability of final products.

Ship Maintenance

Toprope crews have over 10 years of experience in specialised maintenance services on crude tankers and FPSO's. The strategic location of our offices enables us to service large vessels along major trade routes.
