Evolift - Getting people out of harms way

Project description

A solution for safe marine lifting operations

The offshore lifting decks in many marine activities such as in oil and fish farming industries are considered among the most dangerous sites for workers at sea. As a conequence, new technologies are required to eliminate risk from existing lifting operations. The EU-funded Evolift project offers a pioneering remote-controlled marine solution that can provide unmanned loading and offloading of cargo or buoys on in-shore and off-shore boats and oil rigs. The solution paves the ground for autonomous ships and rigs and opens the way for further development in subsea lifting operations without the support of remote-operated subsea vessels. The new technology permits loading operations in larger weather windows and heavier weather conditions than currently possible thus saving energy, lowering carbon emissions, increasing productivity and protecting human lives.
