Wie zijn wij?
Ampelmann Operations is a high-tech offshore company focusing on development, construction and lease of offshore access solutions. The company was founded in 2008 as a spin-off of the Delft University of Technology. The core technology is the Ampelmann system, a motion compensation platform that allows easy, fast and safe access from a moving vessel to offshore structures, even in high wave conditions. With a doubling of the fleet every year since 2008, Ampelmann currently operates 20 systems world-wide transferring offshore crew from various types of vessels to offshore oil & gas platforms, offshore turbines, FPSO’s and all other fixed and floating structures at sea.
Ampelmann’s base model is the A-type. The platform has 2m stroke cylinders and gangways of 20 and 25m maximum reach. The newly developed (2012) workhorse is the E-type. With 3m stroke cylinders the system can carry up to 100 tons of payload. It can be fitted with standard A-type gangways and client-specific gangway and crane types reaching to maximum 65m.
Ampelmann continues to build its fleet of standard systems adding innovations in application: ship-to-ship functionality, cargo transfer, hose support, re-fueling operations, continuous transfer and many more. All adding up to meet our vision: Offshore access as easy as crossing the street.
