Danos has added rope access capabilities to its portfolio of services. The program, which began in early 2019, allows quicker access to projects in small or challenging locations.

“Recently, a long-time customer asked if we would be willing to perform rope access projects,” said owner Mark Danos. “Part of our company purpose is to solve big challenges for our customers, so we began implementing a competency assurance and training program for rope access technicians to meet this need. Now, we can proudly offer the capability to all of our customers.”

Rope access will enhance Danos’ current service lines by providing additional ways to assist its customers, particularly in the areas of welding, rigging, painting and maintenance where employees are cross-trained. The technique can be an alternative to scaffolding, particularly in areas with limited access.

“By providing rope access capabilities, we are able to reduce the time, number of personnel and risk associated with a project, which ultimately lowers costs for our customers,” said Danos.

Danos offers 15 integrated services including: automation; coatings; construction; fabrication; instrumentation and electrical; materials management; mechanical maintenance; production workforce; project management; regulatory compliance; scaffolding; shorebase and logistics; specialized consultants; power generation; and valve and wellhead services.The company has approximately 3,000 employees and 10 office locations throughout the Gulf of Mexico, Permian Basin, Eagle Ford Shale and Marcellus Shale.
