Safe transfer of personnel via SMST gangway

Dec 19, 2017

SMST’s motion compensated gangway is used¬†on Jumbo’s Fairplayer Vessel to ensure the safe transfer of personnel from the vessel to the windfarm structure in the Arkona offshore wind farm. In November 2017 the first transfers were safely made.

Controllab assisted SMST with the development and testing of the motion compensation controller of the gangway. Using Model-Based Design solutions from Controllab, the engineers of SMST were able to design and implement the control system in a record-breaking time.
