Reflex Marine is developing a new personnel access concept for the offshore wind and traditional energy industries, the Sea-Spider. The Sea Spider utilises winch based access.
Winch based access will enable operators to use much of the current fleet and equipment already in the field. In the absence of a dedicated crane on the installation, a bespoke hoisting system can be retrofitted which allows the personnel transfer capsule to be safely hoisted. At the core of the system is a Frog-XT1, a single person transfer device. The FROG-XT1 has been designed using Reflex Marine’s methodology and will form part of their Frog-XT product range. Options to transfer maintenance teams in groups can also be achieved using higher capacity Reflex Marine capsules.
