Our inspectors were deployed to the port of Tallinn, Estonia, to perform the recurring helideck inspection on behalf of the professional team of TS Shipping OÜ on Icebreaker Botnica!
To be prepared for future helicopter operations, helidecks have to be regularly inspected and certified. The main target of the inspection was to check the current condition of e.g., the helideck markings, lighting, rescue and firefighting systems and the obstacle situation.
The inspection was conducted according to the standards of CAP 437 and other applicable regulations like ICAO Annex 14 Vol. II and ICAO Doc 9261.
During the inspection a friction test was performed with the use of special equipment. Furthermore, the illumination of the helideck was assessed with a measuring device. The inspectors also checked the safety net as well as the firefighting capabilities of the vessel and the crew.
We like to thank TS Shipping OÜ for the excellent cooperation and hope to work together in the future again. airsight and our helideck inspectors are ready for upcoming projects.
airsight offers offshore and shipboard helideck inspections, grip testing and inspections of winching areas on wind turbines, including a detailed inspection report and proof of the compliance status.
