Rope Access equipment

Zener Maritime Solutions has created a niche for itself in the Rope Access Industry. Our inherent knowledge of maritime structures, combined with the skill we have developed over the years, gives us the power to offer customizable solutions to our clients.

For those who are not very familiar with the origins of Rope Access, it dates back to the work that used to be carried out in the North Sea for the offshore industry. It involves rigging of access systems comprising of ropes, knots and points of attachment that are either available naturally or created artificially.

The main objective is to create a complete system that identifies, assesses, and mitigates risks associated with work to be carried out in difficult-to-reach and inaccessible locations.

While its purpose in the offshore industry is quite extensive, Rope Access is rapidly catching on in the maritime industry. With ship operations becoming more and more complex, Rope Access teams offer a great alternative to complete work especially in difficult-to-reach locations.
