Offshore workers walk to work with Ampelmann
Ampelmann, a Dutch specialist providing “walk-to-work” solutions for the offshore industry, has been awarded a contract by Boa Marine Services Inc. (BMSI).
Under the contract awarded, Ampelmann will provide a gangway solution for the ExxonMobil-operated Julia project in the Gulf of Mexico.
The work scope of Ampelmann, which opened a Houston office in May this year, comprises transferring day and night shifts of personnel and 24 hours emergency evacuation standby.
The Multi-Purpose Vessel Boa Deep C. of BMSI is being fitted with an Ampelmann A-type gangway.
The A-type is mobilized on a 23-meter pedestal, so it is capable of landing on the platform at a height of 32 meters. The A-type provides a stable transfer platform in conditions up to 2.5 meters significant wave height thereby ensuring a safe, efficient and reliable transfer of personnel.

We look forward to making this yet another successful project in the Americas region.”
