Ampelmann secures five North Sea contracts

In: VesselsWindfarms
Ampelmann has secured five new contracts in offshore wind over the course of a month with Norwegian companies BOA, Volstad, Olympic Shipping, Siem Offshore and DOF. The company will provide two A-type and three E1000 systems, which will aid the installation and maintenance work at offshore wind farms in the North Sea.

In total, this will add up to 380 days of firm work, with possibilities to extend. These new projects have all been secured by the company’s offices in Hamburg and Aberdeen.

Caspar Blum, Business Development Manager Offshore Wind at Ampelmann, commented: “It is not the first time that we are working with these key players in the European market. The fact that they have turned to Ampelmann for safe offshore access again is proof of the value of our systems.”

The A-type is the company’s personnel transfer solution for sea states at heights up to 3 metres. The E1000 is a heavier system with a wider range allowing it to operate in even rougher waters, while supporting access for both personnel and cargo.

To date, Ampelmann has supported the transfer of more than 6 million people and close to 14 million kilogrammes of cargo to and from offshore platforms. It is currently building the E5000 system, with the ability to lift up to 5 tonnes.
“We believe that in the next 10 years, there is potential for about 30 new Service Operation Vessels (SOVs) to be built around the globe,”
added Blum. “Many of those vessels will be looking for a safe and efficient means of offshore access and we are prepared to meet the demand with the development of our new system tailored to SOVs.”
