During this fall, Ampelmann Operations has launched the Ampelmann E-type: the bigger version of the successful A-type. The Ampelmann E-type is capable to operate in higher sea states can carry greater loads and increases the landing height at offshore platforms.
The Ampelmann system is a stand-alone unit that can be placed on the deck of any ship to ensure a safe, reliable and highly efficient transfer of personnel offshore, even in less favorable weather conditions. The Ampelmann system is deployed in projects all over the world in both the Offshore Wind and Oil&Gas industry. Ampelmann Operations currently operates 15 units and has realized over 200,000 safe transfers (100,000 of which in 2012) for a long-list of the most influential players in the market.
The E-type is operational with an XL gangway and will be available again for commercial projects as of November 2012.
