Dutch offshore access provider Ampelmann has secured a contract with marine transportation company Harvey Gulf.
The company will perform maintenance work at an Oil and Gas (O&G) platform in the Gulf of Mexico. An A-type system has been mobilised on the Harvey Blue Sea vessel and will operate for 120 days.
The A-type has an unparalleled track record in the Walk to Work (W2W) industry and makes it possible for personnel to transfer safely from a vessel to a fixed or floating offshore asset in high sea states. To date, the system has enabled the safe transfer of more than 3.4 million people as well as 200 projects, many of which for some of the key oil majors globally.
For this campaign, which started in mid-April, the A-type was installed on an Ampelmann 10-metre pedestal, making it possible to reach landing locations of 20 metres and higher. Ampelmann will be operating on a 24/7 basis, providing the client with more time flexibility and an extended weather window.
This is the first collaboration between Harvey Gulf and Ampelmann.
