Cargo: fully motion-compensated lifting platform

Atlas

Safe and efficient

The Atlas enables heavy lifting operations of up to 65t. Unlike conventional cargo operations that are restricted by weather, the Atlas system operates safely and efficiently in sea states up to 3.5m Hs. The load remains fully stationary throughout. The Atlas can also be used where platform cranes cannot reach. Heavy loads such as lifeboats can then be positioned directly below winches or davits.

New lifeboat safety regulations

Currently, many lifeboats on fixed oil and gas installations and floating platforms are inaccessible by in-situ cranes, meaning that lifeboats are lowered in the sea, navigated to a vessel and lifted by crane onto the ship’s deck.  This traditional ‘wet’ transfer can only be carried out in near-perfect weather and sea conditions and can lead to significant vessel downtime and risk to personnel performing the transfer operation. In addition to this, it puts the allowable POB limit at risk.

The oil and gas industry has just 18 months to upgrade critical release hook systems on offshore lifeboats to meet new regulations imposed by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to improve safety at sea. Lifeboat release and retrieval systems must be evaluated and replaced no later than 1 July 2019.
