Rope access

Access a safer, more efficient way of working

Within our operations and maintenance service line, we offer specialist rope access solutions that support a wide range of offshore requirements. All of our multi-skilled operatives are IRATA qualified. Ranging from Level 1 to Level 3, they can access even the hardest to reach work areas, safely and efficiently.

Benefits of rope access:

  • Improved safety

Statistically one of the safest work at height methods. Our teams and equipment meet vigorous standards

  • Reduced downtime

A quicker and more flexible means of access than scaffolding

  • Cost efficient

Requires less equipment, fewer operatives and a smaller team to set up

  • Multi-skilled teams

Utilising existing core crew improves efficiency and reduces the number of people on board

  • Space saving

Rope access equipment takes up less space and is easier to store compared to other access methods

  • Access the hard to reach

A quick and efficient way for operatives to access hard to reach areas
