Platform Operations


Platform operations

Ampelmann offers a wide range of motion compensation gangway systems to make platform operations in the Oil & Gas industry easier, safer and more efficient. This is particularly important for projects that require supporting vessels for accommodation, maintenance, or construction activities. Our solutions are designed with our clients in mind, meeting their specific project needs. Ampelmann also provides full service throughout each project so clients can focus fully on their core tasks.



With our fleet of active motion compensated gangway systems, we can mobilise quickly and provide safe offshore access even in remote areas. Our systems are able to transfer personnel in calmer waters (L-type) as well as higher sea states (A- and E-type) and extreme cold weather conditions (N-type). Clients often opt for the slideway as an add-on, too, as it allows for the continuous transfer of personnel.

Platform operations projects

  • Ampelmann A-type O&G Wellhead Maintenance
  • Ampelmann Atlas Lifeboat Installation
  • Hook up & commissioning in monsoon season

    Downtime is a major challenge when operating during monsoon periods. With the Ampelmann A-type system, our client managed to reduce costs through shorter vessel charters and reduced turnarounds. Read about the project here.

  • Wellhead maintenance

    With the help of A-type, we supported our client in carrying out a regular yet crucial maintenance scope, and reducing downtime. Read about the project here.

  • Helideck installation and platform maintenance

    An A-type system with a slideway was installed on a barge to enable the safe and efficient transfer of personnel onto the offshore platform in high sea states. Read about the project here.

  • With Ampelmann's Atlas system, our client was able to install new lifeboats during the winter period when sea states are higher. Read about the project here.

"Utilising Ampelmann as one of our continuous business improvement initiatives has met our business and safety objectives."
