Containerized and mobile solutions

Mobile payload systems

In contrast to fixed installed single purpose equipment, mobile payload systems offer agility and flexibility to fleet owners. With mobile payload equipment such as Winches, handling frames and LARS, vessel owners can quickly adapt and capitalize on market opportunities that arises by quickly mobilize required capabilities for mission. Furthermore, CAPEX can be reduced by fleet sharing equipment pool and OPEX by on-shoring maintenance work in between missions. In the new-build-market, multi-purpose vessels designed from scratch to be a platform carrying mobile payload systems can offer further benefit with an inherent robustness for shifting market and potential of a lean manning profile during life-of-ship.
