Uptime runs AMC gangway simulations for Damen to verify wind support vessel operation in the North Sea

Published: 07/11/2016 Updated: 10/23/2017

Uptime International used CDP to simulate their active motion compensated gangway performance on the vessel Bibby Wawemaste that is to be built by Damen shipyards.

Bibby Wawemaste is an offshore wind park support vessel that will operate in the North-Sea and Bibby Offshore Services wanted to verify operational uptime for the AMC gangway on this particular vessel design before building the vessel.

The actual AMC gangway control system was connected to the CDP SIM module and the vessel motion was calculated from the ship design and historical weather condition at the wind park.

The tests were run giving data on expected operation uptime for the vessel with the AMC gangway.
