Palfinger Marine is updating its Offshore Passenger Transfer System (OPTS) for the maritime and offshore industries to make it a 3D compensated passenger and cargo transfer system, which allows safe and efficient transportations of people and cargo between a moving vessel and static offshore structures. The updated OPTS facilitates maintenance of offshore fixed and semi-floating structures, decommissioning work and infrastructure development in the offshore wind energy sector. The system absorbs waves and moves with boats to provide a safe and efficient transfer, reducing the cost of offshore operations. Palfinger is exhibiting the OPTS for the first time at Nor-Shipping 2023 in Oslo, taking place June 6-9, 2023.
Palfinger is offering the OPTS in two variants: a fixed or mobile unit. The mobile version is easy to move and can be used on different vessels, while the fixed unit is suitable for permanent installation. Sverre Mowinckel-Nilsen, head of global marine sales solution management at Palfinger, said the technology sets a “new standard in terms of accuracy, multifunctionality and – most importantly – safety for operators.” With OPTS, Palfinger is showing its innovative strength and position as a complete solution provider, according to Gunther Fleck, Vice President Sales and Service Region Marine at Palfinger.
