Return a lifeboat to the platform during a period of significant wave height.
Conventional methods of retrieving lifeboats can only be completed in significant wave heights less than 1.0 meters. Our customer needed to install new lifeboats during the winter period when sea states are rougher. We provided a safe, innovative connection solution meaning the customer was not limited to installing lifeboats during summer months only. The specially designed system’s hexapod kept the eight tonne lifeboat completely stationary above the vessel deck, to allow lifting by the platform’s davit cranes.
