Norwegian motion compensated access equipment provider Uptime International has entered into a contract with Turkey’s Cemre Marin Endüstri A.S. for delivery of a full Uptime access solution.

Cemre Shipyard will integrate the delivery in the new wind farm Service Operation Vessel (SOV) they are building for the French vessel owner Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA).

The Uptime delivery consists of an active motion compensated gangway and an adjustable pedestal integrated towards the elevator tower in the new SOV design from Salt Ship Design, all this to take care of personnel and cargo transfer from vessel warehouse up to and through the
gangway to the TP.

Once delivered in 2018, the new LDA SOV will operate for Dong Energy Wind Power AS on four wind farms off the German coast – Borkum Riffgrund 1&2, and Gode Wind 1&2 – and will enable the maintenance of wind turbines by wind farm technicians.

“For Uptime it was strategically important to enter the French market and we are honoured and humble to be chosen as the preferred gangway supplier,” Uptime’s Sales & Marketing Director Svein Ove Haugen said.

‘Taken in mind that main focus from Louis Dreyfus Armateurs and Salt Ship Design for this vessel was to develop a unique purpose driven SOV with enhanced operability and efficient logistics gives us confidence in own products and strength to further evolution and development. ”
