Press release

Ampelmann has successfully completed its first Walk to Work (W2W) campaign in Mexican waters. An A-type system was mobilised on the Ocean Star, an MPSV of Micoperi of Mexico, to enable the hook-up and commissioning of an oil and gas platform.

The project enabled the safe transfer of more than 9,000 people over the duration of 110 days. The campaign experienced no technical downtime, resulting in maximum efficiency of operations.

“Ampelmann is grateful for this opportunity and is pleased with the results of the project,” said Andres Garcia, Business Developer for Latin America at Ampelmann. “This was the client’s first hook-up and commissioning project for an IOC in Mexico and they chose Ampelmann as the party to provide them with safe and reliable offshore access. We look forward to many other more projects to come in the region.”

This contract has indeed been an important milestone for the Netherlands-based company, as it paved its way into a new region. Ampelmann is looking towards expanding its reach in Mexico and contributing to ever-higher safety standards in the local offshore industry.

The company is exhibiting at this year’s Mexican Petroleum Congress (Congreso Mexicano del Petróleo, CMP), displaying its latest technological improvements. Ampelmann will be at Stand 565 #11 in the Dutch Pavilion, Léon, Mexico.
