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.

Interview: Ampelmann sets new course with SOV access system

"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).

"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."
