    Offshore Solutions to host marine access seminar in Qatar

    Company News // September 12, 2012

    Offshore Solutions BV (OSBV), the joint venture between AMEC and Cofely Nederland NV, is to hold the third in a series of Marine Access Seminars in Doha, Qatar on Wednesday 26th September.

    The event will take place at the new Hilton Doha from 10.00-15.00 and will allow guests to learn about the significant operational and economic benefits of marine access.

    OSBV’s experienced team will introduce the Offshore Access System (OAS) – a 21m hydraulically operated, telescopic gangway fitted with an active heave compensation system.

    Guests will also hear about the significant operational efficiency and safety benefits the OAS brings to operators from those with first-hand experience of the system.

    Independent technical advisor to the oil and gas industry, GL Noble Denton, will also provide an insight on the importance of selecting the right vessel to maximise the operability of the marine access system.

    The event comes as the OAS currently working in the Gulf for Qatar Shell GTL Limited recently recorded in excess of 60,000 personnel transfers.

    Lindsay Young OSBV’s managing director said: “The Doha seminar follows the successful events in Aberdeen and Dubai where we have been able to explain the benefits of the OAS in maintaining operational efficiency, particularly in the adverse weather conditions Qatar experiences over the winter months.

    "With more than six years experience, OSBV has proved that by using the OAS, operational efficiency can be dramatically improved through providing an access solution that can transfer personnel in the most challenging sea conditions.

    "We look forward to explaining this in greater depth at the seminar later this month.”

    There is no charge for this event and lunch will be provided.
