ABERDEEN, UK -- Reflex Marine is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its FROG crew transfer device. The FROG includes four-point harnesses, protective shell, shock-absorbing landing feet, and self-righting capability.
The device was developed to counter risks such as falling, collisions, hard landings, and immersion associated with traditional rope baskets for personnel transfer.
More than 450 FROGs are in use in oil producing regions and the device accounts for about 1 million crew transfers each year, says Reflex
Reflex Marine has developed three-, six-, and nine-man versions of the FROG.
