  • Dutch offshore access provider Ampelmann has secured its first contract in Mexico, adding a new region to its global portfolio. An A-type system has been mobilised on a flotel and will operate for two months, enabling the installation of an oil and gas platform.

    This contract is an important milestone for the Netherlands-based company, as it gives it the chance to set a new standard in safety for offshore operations in the region.

    “Mexico is a very important market for us,” said Andres Garcia, Business Developer for Latin America at Ampelmann. “We take our first contract in the region as an opportunity to improve the safety standards for offshore transfers in the region.”

    The fully motion compensated A-type system, mobilised on a flotel, is being used in Mexico to transfer personnel from vessels to offshore platforms, and back, making Ampelmann a pioneer in this market.

    “This is a great achievement for Ampelmann to showcase our capabilities in marine personnel access in a new region,” said Gus DeOliveira, Area Manager Americas at Ampelmann. “The work and effort by the team locally has been rewarded with our first project in Mexico. We look forward to working with our client to achieve a safe and successful project.”

    The company is also looking towards expanding its reach in Mexico and contributing to ever-higher safety standards in the local offshore industry.

  • Ampelmann is proud to announce that, as of today, it has enabled the safe transfer of 5 million people and 10 million kilogrammes of cargo worldwide. This double milestone is proof of the company’s continuous commitment to setting the industry standard in offshore safety and efficiency.

    “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. What started as an idea during an offshore wind conference has turned into a company with 11 offices globally and an international workforce. Ampelmann maintains a fleet of more than 60 systems and has enabled over 300 projects to date.

    “As the oil and gas industry is finding its footing again and offshore wind keeps on breaking records, we are happy to have our current fleet fully occupied this year,” said Van der Tempel. “Furthermore, new innovations are already online, with more to come over the next months to expand our efforts in making offshore access as easy as crossing the street.”

  • Ampelmann, the global leader in offshore access services, has reached a new milestone: 500,000 safe personnel transfers for BP globally. The company completed its first transfer for the oil major in Trinidad & Tobago in 2010 and has since enabled another 17 projects in seven countries.

    “Half a million people transfers in eight years is a key milestone for Ampelmann,” said Gus DeOliveira, Area Sales Lead for the Americas. “We thank BP for their continuous trust and support in jointly making the Oil & Gas industry safer and more efficient.”

    “The safe delivery of these transfers is a great achievement,” said a BP Marine Representative. “The operation continues to systematically deliver great safety performance by applying strong operating discipline.”

    With an unparalleled track record, Ampelmann has enabled the safe transfer of more than 4.7 million people and over 9 million kilograms of cargo worldwide.

    The company’s solutions allow for safe and efficient transfers to take place in anything from calm to some of the roughest waters. Ampelmann adapts systems and services to the specific needs of its clients as well as to various regions and weather conditions.

    BP has experienced the abilities of the Ampelmann A- and E-type systems, both of which can operate in sea states of 3m Hs and higher. Tailored solutions have included the slideway as an add-on that enables the continuous flow of personnel from vessel to offshore platform.

    “The W2W projects have been an enabler for BP to access critical production and maintenance levers and to safely deliver value to our customers and stakeholders.”

    Half a million safe personnel transfers has been a milestone for Ampelmann and BP alike and both are looking forward to many more to come.
