The new system will be deployed on the MHO Esbjerg, a 39 meter CTV.
Bastiaan Spruit, General Manager at Z-Bridge, said: “We are extremely proud that we have been contracted to support Ørsted’s ambition to reduce the CO2 footprint and increase safety during transfer of technicians by CTV’s . The Bring-to-Work is a fully motion compensated offshore access system. It will allow teams of four technicians to transfer in a trolley direct from the CTV to the TP platform.”
“By eliminating stepping to the boat landing and climbing ladders this will improving safety. We see that this will also significantly reduce the required visit time per TP, lowering fuel consumption and improving operational efficiency. Our lightweight system is the first offshore access system installed on a CTV that is able to transfer people direct to the TP platform elevation.”
