Maximum versatility, minimum deck area

Osprey in vertical parking mode

Meet Osprey. Designed for wind installation vessels

Safeway Osprey is designed to offer a state of the art offshore motion compensated gangway system for large offshore construction vessels. Self-sustained with integrated HPU and control station, the unit can be relocated at any location on any deck to meet specific project W2W requirements or deck arrangements. The Safeway Osprey also facilitates the transfer of liquid cargo. Regular project cargo is handled by the 3D tip hoist. The flexibility of 'hover-mode' allows optimum vessel headings, required for complex offshore lifting operations.

Self-containment

Powered from the vessel, Osprey operates at any given location with integrated HPU,
control cabin, staircase etc. Vertical parking ensures it doesn't require a boom rest.

34m outreach range

Allows for odd angles to landing sites and large clearance to subsea foundations preventing seabed damage caused by propeller wash.

Landing 18m above deck

Large range of landing sites can be serviced without modifications to vessel or system.

Hover mode

Great flexibility for bringing materials or liquid cargo. No forces introduced in the landing area, no gates required and landing over sea railing is no problem. Vessel is free to choose heading.

Continuous access

Accessibility continuously possible after deployment. No need to limit to batch wise transfers.

Vertical parking

Vertical parking requires less valuable deck space for W2W system (5,5m x 6m).

Operator cabin

Even in the most challenging offshore conditions, the operator cabin ensures maximum operator wellbeing.
