Through integrated mission planning, automated vessel manoeuvring and autonomous gangway connection, K-Walk introduces an innovative approach to personnel and cargo transfer during Wind Farm
construction and maintenance operations.
K-Walk takes a new approach to increasing productivity and efficiency for Walk-to-Work vessels. While providing a completely safe, automatic, motion compensated gangway for the fast transfer of
personnel and materials, integration enables more efficient approach and settlement at wind turbines and more effective logistics.
The system is activated prior to entering a wind turbine’s safety zone, reducing vessel speed and launching the K-Walk connection process during approach. Because of the integration with
the DP, the gangway is able to move into position while the vessel is still moving, positioning it safely as the vessel arrives on station.
