Wind energy – modular gangway
SMST is gaining a firm foothold in Taiwan with its modular gangways and mission equipment.
In March, SMST’s motion compensated gangway started operations for Jumbo Offshore in the Taiwanese waters on board the Jumbo Javelin.
Soon, the delivery of the mission equipment for Ta San Shang Marine (including an access tower with elevator and gangway and a 3D crane), will be a fact.
In March, Jumbo Javelin started installing the first Transition Pieces for its wpd contract for the Yunlin offshore wind farm. With this the go-ahead was given for the technicians to cross the first SMST gangway to operate above the Taiwanese waters. Many safe transfers of Jumbo’s crew and cargo have since taken place.
Jumbo Offshore awarded SMST a rental contract for their motion compensated gangway, including stacking modules for working on height. Last year the gangway, the so-called Telescopic Access Bridge M-Series (TAB-M), was installed on board of Jumbo’s DP2 Heavy Lift Crane Vessel (HLCV) Jumbo Javelin.
The mobilization of the walk-2-work solution in the port of Singapore, in partnership with Huisman Far East Services, was a good example of SMST’s worldwide availability and operational support, even in times of worldwide restrictions as a result of COVID-19.
