IJmuiden-based company Z-Bridge has completed the sea trial period for their Bring-To-Work (B2W) system. The system is said to be the first offshore access system suitable for CTV’s or smal DP vessels.

For the sea trials, the B2W system was mobilised on the vessel MHO-Esbjerg in Breskens in the first week of October this year. The MHO-Esbjerg is a catamaran by the Danish operator MHO-Co which is used for transporting personnel and cargo to wind turbines.

The system underwent several tests. In a step by step approach the technical capabilities, Emergency scenarios and operational procedures have been tested. At the end, manned tests have been conducted.

Lightweight, cost efficient motion compensated access solution
Z-Bridge developed the B2W system to offer a lightweight, cost efficient motion compensated access solution that can also hoist 3 tonnes and is suitable to operate from a CTV or small SOV.

The system received a certificate for Offshore Acces System from Bureau Veritas in September this year after a series of onshore tests. The company said it is now available for projects.
