Ampelmann provides access solution for commissioning of the Solan project in West of Shetland
Motion compensated access solutions developer Ampelmann informs it  will provide one of its offshore access solutions to enable ‘walk to work’ for a commissioning campaign on Premier Oil’s Solan field, West of Shetland. The Ampelmann system enables the safe and effective transfer of the workforce in one of the world’s most challenging offshore locations.
To meet the demands of working offshore West of Shetland, the multipurpose service vessel the Siem Spearfish is being fitted with an Ampelmann E-type system. The E-type provides a stable transfer platform in conditions of up to 4.5 meters significant wave height thereby ensuring safe, efficient and reliable transfer of personnel.
“Contributing to a commissioning project in this challenging area is a significant milestone for Ampelmann and further reinforces our position as the global leader in motion controlled offshore access,” said Wiebe Emsbroek, Area Manager Europe at Ampelmann. “This safe and efficient way of transferring personnel offshore has become a viable and effective alternative to other transfer methods and Ampelmann is extremely pleased to set the standard in safety again in this landmark project.”
