Our Synthetic Sisal (Polysteel) rope in use on the North Sea

32 kilometres off the North Norfolk coast is the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm. It generates green, clean energy to power more than 430,000 UK homes.

And powering its way between coast and turbines is “Green Storm”, a crew transfer vessel operated by Green Marine, based in the Orkney Islands.

They kindly sent us some great pictures of our Synthetic Sisal rope in use. It is fitted to “Green Storm” to tie off to the platforms and make transfers safe.

Synthetic Sisal is made from Polysteel fibres, and is part of our Polysteel ropes range. Polysteel is around 30% stronger than Polypropylene – it is tough, durable and will not shrink or rot. Importantly for this application, Polysteel keeps its strength when wet, stores wet and floats in water. These are qualities that Vessel Masters appreciate when they are looking after the safety of the wind farm and vessel crews.
