Game-changing offshore access. Again.


A bit over a decade ago, Ampelmann brought innovation to offshore access and laid the foundation of a whole new market. We made it possible for offshore personnel to Walk to Work. In fact, we made it the industry standard to provide the highest level of safety, efficiency and reliability in transferring people and cargo at sea.

Today, it's not about standing by those standards, it's about raising them.

We tailor our solutions to the increasingly specific challenges of our clients, develop new ones to meet new demands and continuously improve the excellent service we're known for. We create long-term partnerships and do so with a strong sense of responsibility for the environment. We're pushing the boundaries of our own industry and...

... changing the game of offshore access. Again.
