survey handling equipment
The equipment used for offshore surveys is often valuable and delicate. Therefore, secure storage and easy access to the equipment for service purposes is more than welcome. Draftec has developed a moonpool system that can be implemented in existing as well as newbuild vessels. The moonpool system opens a gate valve, mounted closely to the hull, and hydraulically lowers a guiding pole in order to position the survey equipment approximately half a metre below the hull.
The system is designed and built according to Class regulations, including the emergency hoist functionality. Since the systems is PLC-controlled, it can easily be connected to the control system of the vessel for operation, status indication and alarm functionality. Together, all the above made this moonpool system a user-friendly and versatile tool, to the great satisfaction of our customers.
