Transfer at heights with the Ampelmann SOV system

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.

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).

  • 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.

  • The market solution for people and cargo transfers

    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 Ampelmann, we have experienced a very reliable system and thus very little downtime for system and vessel operations. Obviously, this has a high value in our calculations and comparisons."
