Houlder and BMT Nigel Gee announced that their jointly developed Turbine Access System (TAS) has won the Safety Innovations Award at the 27th Offshore Achievement Awards organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), Aberdeen Section.

The award was presented to Frederic Perderix, Houlder Chief Technical Officer by Walter Thain Vice President, Operations for Petrofac, the Award sponsors, at the dinner in Aberdeen on March 21.

TAS is a patented motion compensated platform that provides a safe and stable point of access to the Turbine, Offshore Structures or other vessels.

The judges decided that TAS clearly demonstrated improved safety for personnel transfers to offshore windfarms and would also allow increase in operability. With improved safety and meeting the operator’s stringent costs requirements TAS will mean more work days are possible than with traditional access methods.
