REPORT DUE ON OPEN-DECK SAFETY DEVICE
This interesting article, published by OSJ introducing one of our innovative vessel solutions, the Wave Breaker Safety System (WBSS). The project combines our innovation and safety culture with the aim of delivering a safer workplace on board open-stern vessels.
OSJ says: "MMA Offshore general manager fleet operations Australasia Richard Furlong told OSJ that, with industry support from three major oil and gas companies, it had developed what it calls a Wave Breaker Safety System (WBSS). The project “combines MMA Offshore’s innovation and safety culture with the aim of delivering a safer workplace on board open-stern vessels,” he said."
"The WBSS consists of a flexible mesh barrier that reduces the volume and force of green water entering the back deck and will incorporate an advanced alarm system. Several in-field trials have been conducted on MMA Offshore vessels and a study and testing programme has been completed by the University of New South Wales Water Research Laboratory. In early May, the WBSS underwent its final testing stages at the laboratory, during which a presentation was made to the industry support group."
