SSP Offshore to showcase revolutionary offshore logistics base


SSP Offshore to showcase revolutionary offshore logistics base

HOUSTON: Earlier this year, Bristow Group, a leading provider of helicopter services to the worldwide offshore energy industry, signed an agreement with SSP Offshore to be the exclusive helicopter transport service provider for the SSP HUB, with the exception of China and Brazil. Bristow will contribute its expertise to design details and operational protocols for the HUB. SSP HUB will be showcased at OTC 2014 in the Bristow Group booth, #917.

The SSP HUB is a logistics solution that addresses the challenges of transporting personnel to exploration and production platforms in deep and ultra-deep waters. The HUB utilizes the exceptional motion and inherent stability characteristics of the SSP PLUS design in a new commercial application, delivering unique functionality that combines (1) safe and efficient high-volume personnel transport capabilities in a protected environment without reliance on gangways; (2) flotel and emergency accommodation capability, and (3) full offshore supply base capacity for fluids and other materials.

Target markets for the SSP HUB are the new deepwater developments throughout the world that are located further offshore and create significant logistics challenges for conventional service offerings. Economic modeling completed on behalf of offshore field operators demonstrates the opportunity for significant economic efficiencies through implementation of the SSP HUB.

Detailed design and engineering work has been substantially completed on the SSP HUB, along with extensive docking simulations in various sea-states. The United States Patent Office has recently issued a patent with multiple claims relating to the SSP HUB, adding to the proprietary claims previously granted by the United States Patent Office on the core SSP PLUS floating platform.
