OSBV's experienced team will introduce the Offshore Access System (OAS) -- a 21-metre, hydraulically operated, telescopic gangway fitted with an active heave compensation system.
The orders consist, among others, of two Hydramarine cranes equipped with Active Heave Compensation (AHC) systems.
The system has highly accurate active heave compensation to cope with severe weather and can automatically launch and recover a ROV to a given target depth and at a given target speed.
The 400 mt deepwater crane (up to 3,000 m) is equipped with a deepwater lowering system and an active heave compensation system to counter-act the vessel's heaving motion when landing a load on the seabed.
The deal covers the detailed design, manufacture and testing of a fully integrated launch and recovery solution, including a high-speed electric winch with active heave compensation, bespoke deployment system and all associated power and control systems.
The upgrade includes an exchange of all 6 gensets including new foundations, overhaul of all thrusters and azimuths, replacement of 2 cherry pickers and the existing twin slewing cranes by a new single boom 50T crane with active heave compensation. All switchboards will be renewed and the accommodation will be dealt with thoroughly.
PROD4 will be complemented by a fourth Launch & Recovery System (LARS4) featuring Active Heave Compensation and 3000m deployment capability.
The contracted work includes providing fully integrated deployment systems with capacity to operate in heavy-weather conditions through the use of high-speed electric winches providing active heave compensation (AHC) capability.
