Ampelmann announces new transfer system

Ampelmann E5000 01 1Ampelmann, the Dutch offshore access provider, has announced that it has a new full-motion compensation system in the pipeline

The E5000 is the latest development brought forward by the company, with the ability to transfer personnel as well as cargo up to 5,000 kg in rough waters offshore.

It is expected to be operational in Q3 2020.

The system is based on the proven technology of the E1000, which has been performing safe people and cargo transfers since its launch in 2016.

“Building on the success of the E1000 and the specific needs of our clients, we recognised an opportunity to design and develop a system that can transfer people and lift up to 5 tons of cargo. That significantly broadens the possibilities of the offshore lifting scope compared to existing systems,” said Diederick Nierstrasz, Ampelmann’s Offshore Wind Business Unit Manager.

“With the E1000, we launched a unique system on the market,” Nierstrasz added. “As the market recognised its potential, clients requested more lifting capacity and we believe the E5000 can offer a compelling package for them to get the most out of their offshore campaigns.”

Ampelmann will be exhibiting at WindEurope Offshore on 26-28 November in Hall C, C3-C1, Bella Centre, Copenhagen, Denmark.
