Vistem launches mobile access platform for offshore sector

ABERDEEN, December 15, 2015

Vistem, a provider of game-changing technology to the oil and gas industry, has launched an innovative mobile access platform for the offshore sector that is set to bring significant cost, time and safety benefits to clients.
 
The Atex approved access lift, which reaches a height of 3.5m, is battery and motor free, said a statement. 
 
Powered by a pre-loaded gas spring and gear system, the turning of the simple dead man handle raises and lowers the platform, it said.
 
The lift will offer an alternative to traditional podiums and stepladders, which present risks associated with working at height. Personnel will be fully enclosed in the lift prior and during the elevation, which drastically reduces the risk of fall.
 
The lift is very compact with a footprint of only 850mm (width) by 985mm (length) and can be raised in 11 seconds and lowered in 11 seconds.
 
The lift can operate in 28mph winds and can be used for a variety of routine offshore tasks. It will include mechanical and operational tasks, general inspections, routine lighting and general electrical maintenance, fabric maintenance, inspection of cranes and rigging and any other low-level work.
 
Thomas Barter, head of sales, said: “Safety is at the forefront of all that we do at Vistem, and each product we create has a primary aim of reducing health and safety risks to personnel. 
 
"With falls from height being the biggest cause of injury in the workplace, our new lift is a step change in low-level access and will drastically reduce the dangers of working at height.”
 
“Vistem is a huge advocate of ‘Smart Thinking’, and by addressing problems with new and different thought processes, we are able to innovate and deliver continuous business improvements," said Barter.
 
“We consult closely with both existing and potential clients to understand their challenges in the current climate, before analysing and engineering potential solutions," he said.
 
“Our solutions are being used by a growing number of oil and gas clients throughout the UK and we want to help our customers improve their procedures and operate more efficiently,” Barter added. - TradeArabia News Service
