Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is the largest cruise line by revenue and second largest by passengers counts. In 2018, Royal Caribbean International controlled 19.2% of the worldwide cruise market by passengers and 14.0% by revenue. As of July 2019, RCI operates twenty-six ships, including the four largest cruise ships in the world.9(Cert equipment Singapore)
Since most offshore rigs are based in the middle of the ocean and far from land, currently during inspection, either i) inspectors are flown onto the rig (highly costly), or more typically, ii) rig operators send the equipment to be tested onshore for at least a week, disrupting operations meanwhile or having to buy a spare set of each Cert equipment Singapore to continue working (high cost from daily downtime/ spare equipment expense)
Loss of revenue incurred from current inspection downtime easily runs in the six-digits, after factoring in cost
Design and Installation of Fall Protection Engineered Systems for Royal Caribbean International
In Oct 2019, Quantum of the Seas (168,666 gross tonnage) entered Sembcorp Marine Tuas Boulevard Yard in Singapore for its first dry-dock. Ship maintenance and upkeep is of paramount importance for RCI and crew are exposed to Work-At-Height hazards at certain areas during maintenance work.(cortec Singapore)
To ensure crew safety, United Resources was contracted for the Design and Installation of Fall Protection Engineered Systems, of below scope:
All materials (i.e. cables, turn-buckles, anchors, intermediates, entry/exit units) Stainless Steel Grade 316 for corrosive maritime environment
And that’s exactly why key clients who place a high premium on quality, safety and timeliness like Energy Drilling (an upstream provider of tender drilling solutions) choose to work with WAHS®.
With a tight 3 weeks turn-around for dry-dock, the project had little margin for errors and delays. UR Fall Protection Specialists conducted fall hazard assessment during ship voyage in China, therein designing Fall Protection systems to mitigate associated risks and to protect both crew and ship structure.
