Press release: Uptime International achieves world first Statoil TRL7 proven technology approval for motion compensated gangways.

October 12th, 2017 | Posted by sveinove in Gangway 23,4 | Home | News - (Comments Off on Press release: Uptime International achieves world first Statoil TRL7 proven technology approval for motion compensated gangways.)

TRL 7 is Statoil’s highest technology readiness level. This was achieved for the Uptime 23,4m active motion compensated gangway.During the approval, the gangway was mounted on Island Offshore’s vessel “Island Crown” during a walk to work charter for Statoil. The charter was to perform hook-up and commissioning of the unmanned wellhead platform “Oseberg H” for the “Oseberg Vestflanken 2 development”.

Use of unmanned wellhead platforms is a new concept on the Norwegian continental shelf.

Island Offshore started this walk to work charter at “Oseberg H” with the vessel “Island Crown” in August 2017 and completed in October 2017. During the charter “Island Crown” connected to “Oseberg H” by the Uptime 23,4m AMC gangway, for continuous open access and evacuation means for personnel on the installation.

“We always strive to reach the highest possible level of safety for our Uptime product. This is a vote of confidence and encourages our employees to keep working hard. We achieved the highest readiness level from Statoil as the first gangway provider in the world, based on our 39 year experience in the offshore walk-to-work sector”, says Sales and Marketing Director Svein Ove Haugen

“Island Crown” with the 23,4m AMC gangway is here seen working at Baltic 2

Only with the UPTIME AMC system can the gangway dock directly to a flat bulkhead and the crew can walk across without landing the gangway.

Multiple redundancies and safeguards make sure this operation is safe and efficient for the vessel and crew.
