At Ampelmann, our motto is “Offshore access as easy as crossing the street”. We take this very seriously: on a day to day basis hundreds, sometimes thousands of people go to work safely using our systems all across the world. They leave their vessel, wait for the green light and transfer to their workplace, be it an offshore rig, a turbine or an FPSO. We want that experience to be equivalent to crossing the street: be aware of the action you are taking, follow the procedures and complete the transfer easy, safe and fast.

Systematic approach to safe operations

To achieve that experience, Ampelmann Operations’ employees perform their tasks based on the company’s four core values: safety, professional excellence, team spirit and technological excellence. All personnel is properly trained. All operations are planned and detailed before execution. We use Hazid meetings to discuss the operation with the Ampelmann system within our client’s larger project to ensure all interfaces are understood and documented. In the design of our systems FMEA studies are executed to ensure any single failure of a critical component is covered by back-up components, proper operational protocol is followed and checked against common sense. Ampelmann systems are certified under the Code for Lifting Appliances in a Marine Environment. Furthermore, Ampelmann also involves automotive experts in software fool-proofing and we are in continuous discussions with national HSE departments and clients’ HSE experts to continue to improve safe operations with our expanding fleet and services offered.

Setting the standard in safety

“Offshore access: as easy as crossing the street” puts the bar at the highest level with the correct focus: safety delivered by team, technology and professionalism while the person walking across is aware of what he/she is doing. Ampelmann has become the type-name for motion compensated offshore access systems, setting the standard in safety.
