DELFT, the Netherlands – Offshore crew transportation specialist Ampelmann has introduced the A-type Enhanced Performance (AEP) gangway.

This is designed to provide 10% greater workability in sea states up to 4 m (13 ft) significant wave height; the AEP can also work from smaller vessels to obtain similar performance, compared to the current A-type.

The new system features a motion compensation control system with controls which is said to enable fast landing and comfortable personnel transfers.

It is also said to offer improved operational up-time on projects year-round, including rougher waters in the North Sea and off the coasts of South America and the Middle East.
