Ampelmann provides customised solutions to enable safe and efficient marine crew change operations. The latest addition to our fleet of gangway systems is the improved L-type system, specifically designed to suit the needs of fast and lightweight vessels typically used for transporting crews from shores to offshore structures and back. It can help save up to 30% on your logistics expenses in comparison to traditional methods, such as swing ropes and helicopters, by increasing the safety, efficiency and workability of crew change operations.
With our fleet of active motion compensated gangway systems, we can mobilise quickly and enable safe and reliable crew change operations on a daily basis. Our systems are suited to smaller, fast crew vessels and are able to transfer personnel in calm (L-type) as well as rougher waters (A-type).
The Ampelmann A-type system helped reduce operational expenses for this project by decreasing the need for helicopter transfers. See the project here.
This customer used to transfer their crew from their 35m monohull vessels to their platforms with swing ropes. They chose to implement multiple L-type solutions, which were integrated without the need for any vessel modifications. Since then, these systems have completed over 70,000 people transfers.
Our customer used to deploy helicopters for their Crew Change operations. This method was replaced by two fast 70m catamaran vessels, fitted with Ampelmann A-type systems, to service all their offshore platforms. Each day, approximately 200 people are being transferred to these offshore sites with two daily trips.
