Press release

This month, Ampelmann had the pleasure to welcome a South Korean delegation of 20 people to its production facility in Rotterdam. The facility was among the stops on their trip, alongside a visit to Shell Renewables in the Hague and the Oude Bibliotheek Academy in Delft.

The up-and-coming South Korean Wind market was the trigger for this delegation’s visit to some of Europe’s major players in the offshore energy industry, including Ampelmann as the leading provider of motion compensation gangway systems.

"We are very excited to share our experiences from a long track record of installing and operating offshore wind farms in the European seas," said Diederick Nierstrasz, Team Lead Offshore Wind Product Development at Ampelmann. "South Korea can learn from our pitfalls as an early industry to make a flying start in developing offshore wind. Sharing knowledge is our obligation in order to accelerate the worldwide energy transition to sustainable sources."

On the day, the delegation learned more about Ampelmann’s work in Offshore Wind and was shown around the production facility to have a look at our systems.

In further strengthening its position in the Offshore Wind market, Ampelmann will be exhibiting at this year’s Wind Energy Hamburg conference. The event will take place 25-28 September.
