Friction Survey for FPF-1 Floating Production Facility Helideck
CAe were contracted to conduct a friction survey on the FPF-1 floating production facility offshore helideck conforming to CAA CAP437.
The FPF-1 platform helideck survey was performed during platform commissioning whilst based in the Remontowa Shipyard in Gdansk Poland. A tight schedule had to be adhered to due to the complex nature of all other commissioning works and the logistics involving equipment transfer to Poland. A full technical report was supplied inline with the customer’s requirements including a contour map highlighting any areas of low friction. Full certification was granted to the helideck to allow operation without a landing net for 12 months.
