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.
Are you looking for an easy and efficient way to keep your operations running in the coming months? Ampelmann can help. We have vessels with a pre-mobilised Ampelmann A- or E-type W2W system readily available for Wind and Oil & Gas campaigns. The vessels have variable landing possibilities and capacity between 48 and 155 PAX.

A purpose-built SOV requires a purpose-built W2W system
With more wind farms to be developed in the coming years, especially in the North Sea, safe and efficient offshore access will be crucial. Close to 30 Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) will be built in the next 10 years and each of them will be looking to leverage the right W2W solution.
With its new SOV system, Ampelmann is ready to cater to the specific needs of offshore wind operators - from high operational efficiency to safe working at varying heights.
"Offshore access specialist Ampelmann has unveiled a new walk-to-work system developed for the fast-growing service operation vessel (SOV) market," writes David Foxwell from Riviera Maritime Media.
With our fleet of over 60 operational systems, we can mobilise quickly and provide safe offshore access even in remote areas. We have developed specific systems for personnel transfers (A-type, E-type and the AEP) as well as for transferring loads – both small and large (A400, E1000, E5000 and SOV).
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.
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.
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.
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.
