DELFT, the Netherlands – Ampelmann Operations has introduced Ampelmann E-type, an upgraded version of its offshore crew transfer system.
E-type, which will be available next month, can operate in higher sea states and carry greater loads, and is claimed to increase the landing height at offshore platforms. It comes with an XL gangway.
This stand-alone system can be placed on the deck of any ship, said Ampelmann. Currently 15 Ampelmann systems are in service offshore and have provided more than 200,000 safe transfers.
