Unplanned winter maintenance can be business as usual


Wintertime in the North Sea often comes with harsh weather and high sea states. Maintaining uninterrupted offshore operations can, thus, be a challenge.

Ampelmann helps address such challenges every year. With our full motion compensation technology, our track record and proven Walk to Work (W2W) solutions, we enable the safe and efficient transfer of both people and cargo offshore. With the A-type, E-type or E1000 system, clients can continue operating offshore even in some of the harshest weather conditions, without having to wait on the weather.

Our solutions optimise operations and availability of pre-mobilised systems makes it possible to perform unplanned campaigns on short notice. Unforeseen work is now business as usual.

Are you facing a short-term, unplanned maintenance campaign in the North Sea? Contact our Sales Department for more information on our pre-mobilised system availability.

Highlighted projects

  • Ampelmann Wind Europe 2018
  • Ampelmann A-type O&G
  • E1000 provides high operational availability in the North Sea

    An Ampelmann E1000 operated in the North Sea off the coast of Germany and made it possible for both people and cargo to be transferred safely and efficiently in rough sea states. Being able to fully compensate a vessel's motions, the E1000 demonstrated high operational availability and minimised waiting-on-weather days for the end client.

  • Optimising a maintenance campaign with the A-type

    An A-type system was used to enable maintenance on an Oil and Gas (O&G) platform in the North Sea. It significantly increased platform accessibility as a result of 24/7 access and eventually shortened the project duration from 8 down to 5 weeks.



With our fleet of over 60 operational systems, 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 as well as for transferring small and large cargo alike.
