Truro-based Reflex Marine, a global leader in offshore access, is to showcase its new WAVE-4 marine personnel transfer carrier at next week’s Offshore Energy 16 exhibition and conference in Amsterdam.

The WAVE-4 is the company’s latest innovation to support safe transfers and improve the efficiency of operations.

WAVE-4 is the only transfer carrier for standing passengers to protect against the four major risks of personnel transfer – vertical impact, lateral impact, falling and immersion.

With over 20 years’ experience, Reflex Marine is involved in more than one million safe personnel transfers across the globe every year.

photo-2-wave-4-passenger-transferBusiness manager for Europe, Catherine Allinson, said: “The theme of the Offshore Energy conference is very much in line with our desire to see the industry enter a new era in safe personnel transfer.

“Verified data has shown that the chances of fatality in helicopter transfers are approximately 11 times higher than for crane transfers and we believe it is time for the industry to both act on these risks and consider all transport options.”

Offshore Energy 16 takes place on October 25 and 26.
