Safe hose operating system (PSV)
Our system eliminates the need for manual catching and securing on board platform supply vessels and anchor handlers during unloading cargo by hose, keeping the crew safe.
SHOS- the Safer Hose Operation System is designed to make life safer for deck crew on offshore support vessels by remote control of the operation of capturing the hoses suspended from the rig for transfer of liquids or powders from OSV to rig or platform.
Instead of the crew securing the hoses by hand, hydraulically operated hooks can be extended from the side of the vessel under remote control from the bridge to catch and secure the hoses. Power for this operation is taken from the vessel’s main hydraulic system and SHOS is easy to install on existing vessels.
A typical system comprises six hooks, three each side of the vessel mounted in the cargo rails, and a remote control panel in the bridge aft control console.
