Global offshore access provider Ampelmann has won five new offshore wind contracts which will see two A-type and three E-type systems installed on vessels operating in the North Sea.

This is an important achievement for the company as the offshore wind market continues to strengthen and Walk to Work (W2W) operations become increasingly important. Four of the five contracts have been secured by Ampelmann’s recently opened office in Hamburg, Germany.

Among the new contracts is a five-month commissioning campaign with vessel owner Eidesvik. “After a successful collaboration last year, we are excited to work with Eidesvik again in the coming winter season,” said Tim Börner, business development manager, offshore wind at Ampelmann.

Increasing demand

An Ampelmann E-type system has been installed on the Viking Neptun vessel to enable supporting works at the Merkur windfarm in the German North Sea. The E-type provides safe offshore access in rough sea waters and can compensate wave motions up to 4.5m Hs.

In response to increasing demand in the region, Ampelmann has also expanded its team in Hamburg. Caspar Blum has been appointed business development manager and will support the company’s growth ambitions in offshore wind.

“We look forward to further increasing our footprint in the renewables sector and the new addition to our team ensures that we can keep delivering the quality our clients expect,” said Mr Börner

To date, Ampelmann has enabled the safe transfer of 400,000 people and seven million kilogrammes of cargo in the offshore wind sector worldwide.
