Commander

Alu Design has signed an initial two-year framework agreement with Oceaneering, a world leader in providing specialized oilfield engineering products and services, for the supply of an advanced, newly developed operator chair. Christened Commander, the high-specification chair has been designed to meet NORSOK S-002 and other stringent international standards.

The Kristiansand, Norway-based business, an established name in the chair and deck rails design and manufacturing segment, will now be marketing Commander to leading names throughout the maritime and energy industries. Crafted from lightweight yet robust aluminum, the chair has been developed to offer users the optimum in comfort, durability and functionality. Its adherence to NORSOK S-002 ensures it meets rigorous requirements regarding ergonomic and operational standards.

“Although this is a completely new concept, our agreement with Oceaneering means that it will quickly make its mark on the sector, providing the best possible working environment for users,” comments Frank Robertsen, Alu Design’s Marketing Director.

“ROV (Remote Operated Vehicles) operation is a key business area for Oceaneering, and Commander is perfect for this market. Its conformance with NORSOK ensures that it provides outstanding ergonomic performance, which is essential when you are piloting one of these vehicles for shifts of up to, and beyond, 12 hours.”

The framework agreement marks the first time Alu Design has worked with Oceaneering. The first chair is scheduled for delivery in early 2014.
