HMI & Matrix Screen enclosures – Offshore


A fast track on-going regeneration project for an offshore drilling operation required our customer to design & install HMI control and driller panels complete with safety critical apparatus exceptionally short lead times.

This particular client had very specific and unique design requirements meaning “standard” off the shelf enclosures were of no use at all. All the fabrications shown here were the same project so all had to be of the same standard and tolerances.

Needing to fit a pre-determined footprint and housing delicate and safety critical apparatus, the fabrications had to protect against the most onerous of offshore conditions.

Downtime in any industry, can prove very costly.

Flameproof enclosures (Ex d) were, as usual, considered far too expensive, over engineered, cumbersome, heavy and unsuitable.


Our highly skilled  in-house design team utilise the latest and fastest design software. This enables  us to “unwrap” our customers own drawing designs. So as we work so closely with our customers, this ensures a smooth transition to manufacture and allows us to design for use on our own tooling. So, effectively you can have a custom enclosure from indEx in the time it takes our competitors to get a “standard” enclosure with a couple of gland plates and a few entries to you! Custom as standard.

Every indEx enclosure or fabrication is built to the highest standard. No Compromise.

indEx are building a cast iron reputation for rapid, efficient customer service with the highest quality products that our competitors are just not suited to in modern high tech engineering and manufacturing. We are working very hard to ensure your complete satisfaction at every level of the enquiry to delivery process and beyond. No inconvenience.

Generally customers for the O&G industry require a very fast reaction time as shutdowns can be very costly. indEx always build with this in mind and are conscious that every minute counts. No delay.
