Offshore Solutions B.V. (OSBV), the joint venture between AMEC and Cofely Nederland N.V., is celebrating the successful completion of its five-year contract for NAM in the Southern North Sea.  During this period, the Offshore Access System has enabled more than 31,000 walk-to-work transfers to be made without incident.

A joint venture between Shell and ExxonMobil, Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij B.V. (NAM), awarded OSBV the contract to increase its efficiency and productivity, whilst safely transferring personnel.

Working in the UK and Dutch sectors of the Southern North Sea, the OAS provided heave compensated marine access, setting the benchmark for personnel transfer safety, achieving in excess of 2,800 operational connections, without any lost time incidents.

During the aviation shutdown earlier in the year, due to the volcanic ash cloud, the OAS enabled more than 180 additional personnel to transfer successfully and keep the NAM assets operational.
