Offshore Wind

Offshore Wind made safe & easy

Ampelmann’s solutions are designed with our clients in mind, ensuring fast and easy mobilisation, efficient operations and service throughout the entire lifecycle of a project. With innovation at the core of its products, Ampelmann has developed the E1000, which is a unique system in the market that can safely transfer both people and cargo, with a change between people and cargo transfer mode with a press of a button.



With our fleet of fully motion compensated gangway systems, we can mobilise quickly and provide safe offshore access even in remote areas. We have developed specific systems for personnel transfers (A-, E-type and the AEP) as well as for transferring loads – both small and large (A400 and E1000).

  • Minimising ‘waiting on weather’

    The A-type provided a safe means of transferring personnel from the vessel to the platform and back, significantly decreasing 'waiting on weather' downtime. Read about the project here.

  • Grouting project

    By utilising the A-type system, Ampelmann enabled the safe and efficient offshore transfer of personnel and a 400kg grout hose to the wind turbine transition piece. Read about the project here.

  • People and cargo transfers in rough waters

    Some of the necessary equipment during commissioning campaigns often weighs hundreds of kilograms. With the E1000 system, clients have been able to transfer personnel as well as loads in a safe and cost-efficient manner.

  • Increased weather window during installation

    Speed of operation is essential to reduce costs during the installation of offshore wind turbines. With the help of the Ampelmann A-type, multiple clients have been able to increase the weather window of their operations.

"With the Ampelmann gangway, you can say that offshore work becomes onshore work."
