Testing of helicopter transportation suits in wave pool

According to the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association's (former OLF) testing procedures for helicopter transportation suits, OilComp have tested a variety of suits and equipment components associated with these. Several of the tests have been performed in the wave pool at a training center in Esbjerg (Denmark) where we simulated real conditions with gale force wind, rain and waves up to 1.2 meters.


In connection with the testing of various equipment components on survival suits, we also allowed suits to undergo a series of challenges and environments which are relevant to an offshore worker. This includes the helicopter underwater escape, escape chutes, life rafts, falls from great heights up to 28 meters (with a mannequin) to name a few.
