Frog-6 makes debut in Mexican waters

Reflex Marine’s first personnel transfer device is now operational in Mexico after being certified by the Mexican Merchant Marines.

Reflex Marine’s six person transfer device, the FROG-6, was purchased by Olympic Shipping for use on their accommodation vessel, the MPSV Olympic Triton. The FROG-6 is being used to transfer Olympic Triton’s crew to and from other crew boats and supply vessels working on the Cantarell oil field in the Gulf of Mexico.

The FROG-6 provides protection from the four key risks of transfer: Falling, collision, heavy landings and immersion. The buoyancy panels provide self-righting and floatation in the event of immersion in water. These panels are coupled with a stainless steel frame, shielding passengers from side impacts, while the polymer foam landing feet help reduce vertical impacts.

The FROG-6 seats are mounted on coil springs combined with gas dampers to protect passengers from heavy landings. The FROG-6 also has a medevac capability that allows the device to safely move casualties.
