Offshore access solutions provider Ampelmann said it has won five new contracts for its Walk to Work (W2W) solutions in the offshore wind market over the course of September. These projects will see two A-type and three E-type systems installed on vessels operating in the North Sea.
Four of the five contracts have been secured by Ampelmann’s recently opened office in Hamburg, Germany.
An Ampelmann E-type system has been installed on the Viking Neptun vessel to enable supporting works at the Merkur wind farm in the German North Sea. The E-type provides safe offshore access in rough sea waters and can compensate wave motions up to 4.5m Hs.
To date, Ampelmann has enabled the safe transfer of 400,000 people and seven million kilograms of cargo in the offshore wind sector worldwide as the offshore wind market continues to strengthen.
In response to increasing demand in the region, Ampelmann has also expanded its team in Hamburg. Caspar Blum has been appointed Business Development Manager and will support the company’s growth ambitions in offshore wind.
