Best-in-class solutions and services


With our fleet of active motion compensated gangway systems, we can mobilise quickly and enable safe and reliable crew change operations on a daily basis. Our systems are suited to smaller, fast crew vessels and are able to transfer personnel in calm (L-type) as well as rougher waters (A-type and S-type).

"The main drivers in the crew change market are safety and efficiency. There is an increasing awareness among international oil companies that current operations can be significantly improved in these areas to ultimately increase productivity."
