Access to a platform in the North Sea was required from a new harsh-environment jack-up. Hampco was contracted shortly before delivery of the rig from a Singapore yard to develop an access concept and complete all engineering design and approvals with DNVGL. A new personnel transfer standard had just been implemented by DNVGL which required additional review and evaluation but all design, approvals and manufacture were achieved in a very tight delivery schedule. The completed access tower and gangway were transported with the rig and installed in Invergordon, Scotland.
