Marine Beacons Rushed to Gulf Coast

Less than 24 hours after Hurricane Ida reached the coast of Louisiana, trucks were leaving Tideland Signal’s factory loaded with solar powered marine beacons and fog signals needed to mark the Gulf Coast’s vital offshore oil wells.

Emergency spares, sent to replace existing equipment damaged during the hurricane, arrived at coastal staging areas ready for immediate deployment well before the coastal helicopter and workboat fleets were set to depart offshore.

Tideland Signal factories in Texas and Louisiana are working round the clock to ensure additional equipment is ready for immediate delivery as the crews start to learn the real effect of Hurricane Ida.
