Ampelmann has been awarded a contract by SBM Offshore in support of an FPSO maintenance campaign in the Espírito Santo Basin, Brazil. Ampelmann will provide an E-type system in January 2017 with a scope that includes transport, importation, engineering and provision of offshore access services.
Sander Groenteman, Business Development Manager for Brazil added “After 2 successful FPSO campaigns in Brazil last year, it is very positive to see the demand for our services continuing to grow. We are extremely pleased that SBM has chosen Ampelmann as their partner in this particular project and we look forward to building a strong business relationship with SBM Offshore going forward.”
The Ampelmann E-type system is the largest fully active compensated system within the Ampelmann portfolio. Operating globally, it has already performed in sea states above 4.5 m significant wave height in Brazilian waters. Over the course of two recent Brazilian projects in the last 12 months, Ampelmann provided over 15,000 safe transfers.
