Carry out your offshore operations. Unaffected by the Harmattan.


Operating during Harmattan season does not have to be a challenge. While strong winds and sandstorms prevent helicopters from operating, marine access solutions make it possible for personnel to continue working offshore.

With our track record and Walk to work (W2W) solutions, Ampelmann is the alternative to conventional offshore transfer methods. Clients are, thus, able to plan their offshore work better and continue operating even during the rapidly-changing weather conditions caused by the Harmattan.

Our systems and services optimise offshore operations and eliminate the unpredictability of the season.

Do you want to make sure the weather does not interrupt your offshore operations? Contact our Sales Department for more information on our system availability.

Highlighted project

  • Ampelmann L-type 2018
  • Continuous offshore access with the L-type system

    Two L-type systems have been operating off the coast of Nigeria, enabling continuous offshore access to O&G platforms. With an uninterrupted flow of up to 50 personnel every five minutes, Ampelmann has been enabling crew change campaigns in the region in collaboration with vessel owner L.A.T.C. Marine.



With a number of operational systems in the region, we can mobilise quickly (if not already mobilised on a vessel) and provide safe offshore access even in remote areas. We have developed specific systems for personnel transfers in both W2W and Crew Change operations.

"We are proud to have partnered with Damen and Ampelmann in delivering one of the most innovative solutions for the Nigerian upstream industry in recent years. Today, the gangway is fast becoming the company’s preferred mode of personnel transfer."
