Osbit opens Chinese access
First deal in Asian country for MaXccess T12 ‘walk-to-work’ system
UK engineering and technology company Osbit has secured its first order in China for its crew-transfer ‘walk-to-work’ access system.
The MaXccess T12 system will be installed on a 20-metre crew-transfer vessel (CTV), which is currently under construction at the Aurora Yachts shipyard in Dalian, China.
The CTV will be deployed by the State Power Investment Corporation at its Binhai wind farm projects.
Osbit fabricated the MaXccess T12, which can operate in two-metre wave height conditions, at its plant at the Port of Blyth in the UK.
A team of Osbit engineers will support the installation work in Dalian.
Osbit sales and marketing manager Ben Webster said: “China and south-east Asia is experiencing a growth in offshore renewables activity and this project is an important step for Osbit as we build on our track-record for the delivery of innovative and reliable access systems in the international offshore wind sector.”
