SPOTLIGHT ON IRELAND SAFE


TRANSFER AT ROBIN RIGG


OFFSHORE WIND FARM


Barton Industrial Services’ design and installation teams working for client, E.On UK Ltd were contracted to supplying a reliable and innovative solution regarding the safe transfer from boat to ladders at Robin Rigg off- shore wind farm.


HARSH CONDITIONS


Working in harsh conditions at sea, their team of highly trained technicians installed 64 vessel to pile transfer Latchways Sealed Self Retractable Lifelines (SRLs) on ladders which entailed hoisting tailor-made posts using a davit crane onto a platform, securing the posts to the ladders with special fixing kits, attaching the SRLs to the posts and testing the systems.


WORKER PROTECTION


The company’s solution ensured that the user is protected from falling when accessing the external turbine ladder from the transfer vessel.


EQUIPMENT SPECIFICATION The continuous loop tether line system allows the SRL attachment point to be easily accessible from the boat in any tidal conditions. The Sealed SRL employs patented frictionless braking technology known as Constant Force. This braking mechanism has no moving parts and will not go out of adjustment or require recalibration for the lifespan of the product. With its ATEX approval and IP69k rating, it is perfectly suited for the harsh environment experienced on offshore wind farms.


Impressed by the solution and the quality of our workmanship, E.On UK Ltd has entrusted Barton with the Phase Two installation of SRLs at Robin Rigg off- shore wind farm.
