Safety bails

James Fisher’s safety bails are an innovative, controllable failure system, designed to improve the safety of drill ships and semi submersibles during completion and work over (C/WOR) operations.

The system reduces the risk of damage to expensive equipment by providing a controlled failure mechanism at a predetermined load. This increases safety of drilling installation operatives and reduces the risk of environmental contamination.

Proven capability:

  • Bail arms – designed with a shear pin to form a known weak link if a lock up occurs
  • Reduces risk of potential damage to life, the environment and expensive equipment
  • Designed top side for ease of visibility and resetting
  • Does not separate if shear pin is broken
  • Can be easily reset if activated
  • Used extensively in the North Sea
