OSBIT Power (OP), Siemens Wind Power and Statoil have announced that they have successfully completed offshore trials of OP’s  offshore wind turbine access system, MaXccess.

The trials were conducted with the backing of Siemens Wind Power and Statoil, at the Hywind Demo floating offshore wind turbine off the coast of Norway. MaXccess was installed on the wind farm service vessel “Bayard 3”, operated by Fred Olsen Windcarrier, for the duration of the trials conducted over the past month from Statoil’s Hywind operations base at Skudeneshavn, Norway. The trials saw successful safe transfer of personnel taking place in conditions ranging from 1.2m up to 1.9m significant wave height (Hs). During the 9 days of offshore operations, over 100 connections were made, with MaXccess being clamped to the turbine buffer tube for over 12 hours in total, during which time 36 personnel transfers were made.
