“Island Crown” delivered to owner with UPTIME AMC gangway

Island Offshore took delivery of the M/V Island Crown from Vard Brevik on May 24th, 2013.


The vessel is a purpose built Walk to Work Maintenance and Subsea Support Vessel outfitted for offshore Inspections, Maintenance and Repairs in addition to general subsea work.

The UPTIME gangway provides a permanent motion compensated gangway system for safe and easy access to and from offshore installations.

Vessel equipment also includes a long-reach offshore crane and the vessel is prepared for skid and ROV installations.

Svein Ove Haugen, Marketing Manager of UPTIME: This is the world’s first motion compensated gangway installation for two main modes: long-duration connection, unattended by operators, and the push-on-mode, providing quick mobilisation. With the push-on-mode, landings can be done very quickly against structures of almost any kind. The gangway is also the first DnV approved gangway after the new class requirements. The system has a multitude of redundancies and safeguards to ensure that this is a secure and failsafe solution.

We are humbled and proud of being able to deliver this system to Island Offshore, who in their profile use “Leader in advanced marine operations”. We congratulate the owner with a very capable vessel and look forward to seeing it in use in waters worldwide.
