Offshore 'Walk-to-Work' Contracts for Uptime
Uptime International says it has entered into contracts with MAC Offshore Dubai and Fujian Mawei Shipyard China for delivery of three active motion compensated gangways.
The first of these three gangways will be mounted early 2015 on their third Compact Semi Sub (CSS) maintenance vessel, which was designed by STX’s Vancouver office. The next two will be mounted on two new Motel Support Vessels to be built in 2015/2016.
In order to ensure the POB access, the vessels have been upgraded with motion compensated gangways which, during inclement weather, will significantly increase the ability to connect to offshore installations.
Uptime International adds that it also delivered an active motion compensated gangway to MAC Offshore Dubai and Fujian Mawei Shipyard last year, which was mounted on their second Compact Semi Sub “BSC CSS 1” that will soon be in charter for Shell Brunei.
