The Arctic Pad was installed as a retrofit package which included extensive use for all escape route stairways, muster stations, life raft davits, doorway entrances and critical access areas. The Arctic Pad was also extensively installed on the forecastle deck at the clients request to improve operational safety and crew access. Due to the nature of this retrofit a complete control and monitoring system was designed and included in the scope of supply.
As a retrofit, the existing deck(s) was uneven, un-level and had multiple surfaces at differing heights. This was easily overcome due to the flexibility of the Arctic Pad. Thus eliminating the need for extensive modifications, costly repairs and ultimately removed trip hazards by traversing over deck transitions. During installation the vessel was undergoing a re-certification and relocated to 4 different shipyards during the process. As such four different shipyards were easily trained on the mechanical installation with very little disruption to other ongoing mobilization activities.
