||This project is a continuation of a previous study which reviewed the possibility of using existing offshore pedestal type cranes for the launch and recovery of fast rescue craft. The earlier study concentrated mainly on the environmental and operational problems associated with launch and recovery of the craft. One concept studied was the permanent stationing of a fast rescue craft on a fixed offshore installation that could be launched and recovered by the platform cranes for emergency rescue and other forms of installation support. The present study focuses in more detail on the issue of the suitability of existing pedestal cranes on fixed installations to safely launch and recover fast rescue craft.
