New Freestanding Offshore Access System

Monday, July 25, 2011

Offshore Solutions B.V. (OSBV), the joint venture between AMEC and Cofely Nederland N.V., has launched a free standing Offshore Access System (OAS) designed to significantly reduce installation time. OSBV has worked with Lowestoft-based, AKD Engineering to convert an existing OAS into a free standing skid mounted unit. The new design will allow quayside installation to be completed in a day and eliminate the need for structural modifications to the vessel to accommodate the pedestal both above and below the deck.
The 80 cu.m. skid-mounted Lloyds-approved unit will reduce the footprint on the vessel leaving more deck space free for storage and workshop facilities.
The free standing unit is pre-commissioned and once installed on a suitable vessel with class two dynamic positioning capability, it is ready for immediate operation, making it extremely suitable and more cost effective for short term hires.
