Transfer milestone reached

Industry Database

Dutch offshore service provider Ampelmann announced in April that it has enabled the safe transfer of 5 million people and 10 million kilogrammes of cargo worldwide.

“The double milestone is a great moment to recognise the ongoing support Ampelmann has received from its customers, who continue to embrace our innovations and the game-changing way of working in the offshore industry,” said Jan van der Tempel, CEO of Ampelmann.

Safe transfer number five million took place during a project in Qatar, where the A-type is operating on the POSH Skimmer vessel for a local oil major.

A project with Siemens on the Deep Cygnus vessel in the North Sea, in turn, is what tipped the counter past the 10 million kg mark. The E1000 has been enabling both personnel and cargo transfers for over two years now, primarily in the offshore wind industry.

Pioneering the Walk to Work (W2W) market more than 10 years ago, the Netherlands-based company has come a long way in enabling the safe and efficient access of crews and cargo to and from offshore structures.
