Safelink AS

Safelink AS is an engineering company that supplies hardware, sofware and engineering solutons to ofshore
lifing operatons. Our solutons increase operatonal safety and reduce weather dependency and downtme
caused by adverse weather conditons and wave actons.
Safelink AS main objectves are:
Technological innovaton
Communicaton with customers
We believe: When we provide increased safety and added value for our customers, we will succeed with our
products and services. To reach our objectves, we will choose main suppliers that recognize our way of thinking.
Two vital elements in ofshore operatons, are safety and tme. Our products are developed with
this in mind.

Passive heave compensators
In subsea operatons where wave-induced resonance and high landing velocity are key issues, our
passive heave-compensators may be the ant-dote to operatonal delays.
Shock absorbers
In the North Sea, the average signifcant wave height (SWH) will be 2.0 m - 2.5 m in Autumn-
Winter, and 1.5 m - 1.8 m in Spring-Summer.
Example: Without a Shock Absorber a cranes safe working load will be reduced already at SWH
0.5m, at SWH 3.0 m the safe working load will be reduced with two thirds. With a Safelink shock
absorber there will be no reducton in safe working load at SWH 3.0 m.
Safelinks wet tow units are very robust, and designed for heavy duty usage. The unit will
withstand severe side loads in wet towing operaton, and handle splash-zone and overload
Light shock absorbers
These are developed because of the new NORSOK R-002 regulatons to become operatve
January 1. 2013. They ensure quick and safe launching of MOB-boats and lifeboats when tme is
These new products ensures smooth delivery of payloads through the water surface without
interruptons. A tagline revoluton!
Our advanced simulators will add a new dimension to planning and utlizaton of equipment in
ofshore lifing operatons
Some economic consideratons
Weather dependency is a fact of life in all maritme operatons.
Heavy investments, expensive equipment and costly operatons is another fact of life in ofshore
These estmated key fgures exemplify these conditons:
Rig Daily rate Hourly rate
Producton platorm $ 1 500 000 $ 62 500
Drillship $ 400 000 $ 17 000
Heavy duty ROV $ 20 000 $ 1 000
Supply vessel $ 35 000 $ 2 000
The fgures above may vary substantally, but the overall picture remains the same, tme is a
critcal element, and tme-saving a critcal factor.
Safelinks solutons reduce weather dependency in lifing operatons. They can be accomplished
safer and quicker, with less risk and less cost.
Our products will beneft safety.
We guarantee a very good return on investment.
Passive heave compensaton
Safelink specialize within passive heave compensaton. We currently have three patent pending
designs with large improvements over the current technology on the market. Our designs ofer
high efciency, low landing velocity and low dynamic load.
Estmate of DCPHC 50-6000 efciency versus wave period and mass density of load
The Safelink DCPHC is a gas spring. Gas pressure is increased when the piston rod is extended. A
sof spring has a small pressure increase for large changes in stroke. To achieve spring isolaton it
is important that the spring is as sof as possible, ideally infnitely sof. Safelink DCPHC units have
large gas accumulators that ensures that the pressure change is low even if the change in stroke
length is large. This makes the units sof which gives a high efciency even for long wave periods.
Safelink DCPHC features an integrated water pressure compensaton system. This is a requirement
for low stfness heave compensators. If you dont have this the piston rod will be forced towards
the inner positon and afer only a few hundred meters it will be rendered useless. This is a major
reason why the passive heave compensators on the market today features a slim piston rod and
high stfness. This reduces the problem slightly, but it introduces another set of problems, which
is vulnerability against side load and poor efciency.
Oscillatory systems have a resonance frequency, which is a functon of the mass and the
combined stfness of the various components such as wire and crane. The resonance frequency
will vary with depth. If this frequency is close to the frequency of the surface waves, the system
will oscillate with large amplitudes. This can cause damage to the load, the lifing system or both.
If a DCPHC unit is used the resonance period will be 17 s or more (compared to typically 6-8 s).
