Dutch offshore access solutions provider Ampelmann has reached a new milestone: 500,000 safe personnel transfers for BP globally.

The  provider of offshore personnel transfer system completed its first transfer for the oil major in Trinidad & Tobago in 2010 and has since enabled another 17 projects in seven countries.

“Half a million people transfers in eight years is a key milestone for Ampelmann,” said Gus DeOliveira, Area Sales Lead for the Americas. “We thank BP for their continuous trust and support in jointly making the Oil & Gas industry safer and more efficient.”

“The safe delivery of these transfers is a great achievement,” said a BP Marine Representative. “The operation continues to systematically deliver great safety performance by applying strong operating discipline.”

With an unparalleled track record, Ampelmann has enabled the safe transfer of more than 4.7 million people and over 9 million kilograms of cargo worldwide.

The company’s solutions allow for safe and efficient transfers to take place in anything from calm to some of the roughest waters. Ampelmann adapts systems and services to the specific needs of its clients as well as to various regions and weather conditions.

BP has experienced the abilities of the Ampelmann A- and E-type systems, both of which can operate in sea states of 3m Hs and higher. Tailored solutions have included the slideway as an add-on that enables the continuous flow of personnel from vessel to offshore platform.

“The W2W projects have been an enabler for BP to access critical production and maintenance levers and to safely deliver value to our customers and stakeholders.”

Half a million safe personnel transfers has been a milestone for Ampelmann and BP alike and both are looking forward to many more to come.
