SafeSTS & Gall Thomson launch active emergency release system for ‘Vision Zero’
In the oil Ship-to-Ship Transfer Industry the cargo transfer operations are carried out with no passive or active protection installed. Improvements to the systems have seen the use of Camlock fittings that allow a much quicker manual disconnection; however, the problem remains that in an emergency the quick disconnection of a hose filled with oil and blanking it off for passing back to the other vessel, or dropping it in the water, is at times simply not possible.
Drawing upon their decades of industry experience, SafeSTS, working in close co-operation with Gall Thomson, is delighted to launch the Protective Transfer System (PTX). Utilising the flip-flap marine breakaway coupling technology proven within other Gall Thomson products for over 20 years, the PTX provides rapid, safe, on-demand release within the marine hose transfer system - so safeguarding offshore oil tanker transfer operations against emergency scenarios in a way which has previously not been possible.
