Ampelmann has secured a contract to supply its A-type gangway system to North Oil Company (NOC) on the chartered Bourbon Gulf Star DP2 72 PAX support vessel.
The vessel is currently deployed to the Al Shaheen Oil Field, 80 kilometres north of Doha, Qatar. Enabling access to multiple offshore platforms, the Ampelmann gangway will be used for project and maintenance campaigns, as well as supporting various scheduled shutdowns.
The Ampelmann Country Manager for Qatar, Jayne Moran, says: “Being awarded this contract is important to Ampelmann, as we continue to expand our presence in the Middle East. The A-type gangway provides our customers with a safe, reliable and cost-efficient method of transferring offshore personnel. We are pleased that North Oil Company has decided to adopt our system in Qatar.”
