Response to FROG-6 Testing with the DPC in Brazil

Following the recent Frog-6 testing performed in July 2019 according to DPC requirements, we were notified that the Frog-6 transfer carrier could not be homologated as it does not comply with one clause, article 7.5.3 of NORMAM-05 Annex 4-A. We were advised that we can submit our rationale and perspective which DPC’s comission would review before reaching its final decision regarding the re-homologation of FROG-6. Reflex Marine is very supportive of DPCs efforts to introduce improved standards offshore Brazil and we believe NORMAM-05 Annex 4-A is an important step forward for the industry. We attest that even without compliance to article 7.5.3, Frog-6 is fit for purpose and safe for use. Furthermore, we have concerns that the application of Article 7.5.3 may not support objectives to safeguard passengers, and if interpreted in a very literal manner it could reduce safety of a personnel transfer basket.

FROG-6 Testing with the Directorate of Ports and Coasts in Brazil

Reflex Marine was the first EU based company to receive accreditation from the Directorate of Ports and Coasts (DPC) for a personnel transfer carrier in Brazilian waters. Reflex Marine's FROG-6 carrier has been officially homologated by the DPC for use in offshore Brazil since 2014. This followed the Brazilian Navy witnessing the FROG-6 undergoing immersion, load, vertical and lateral impact tests, amongst other testing criteria, in December 2013. The FROG-6's design and specification were incorporated into several provisions of Annex 4-A when it was formulated. Reflex Marine were pleased to see the DPC carrying out pioneering work on personnel safety in the Americas and are proud to be supporting the work of the DPC in that respect.
