TENSA Awarded NERA Grant for ROBORIGGER and Active Heave Compensated Pedestal

TENSA is delighted to announce we have been awarded two innovation vouchers from National Energy Resources Australia (NERA) for our Active Heave Compensated (AHC) Pedestal and soon to be launched Roborigger, two products which deliver innovative solutions to technical challenges faced by various companies in the oil and gas and construction industries.

Our AHC Pedestal provides an alternative to using helicopters for transferring personnel from one vessel to another at offshore oil and gas facilities.

If helicopters are replaced by vessels, transferring personnel becomes less costly and safer, improving health and safety as well as financial outcomes.
