Dutch offshore access firm Ampelmann has won its first contract with Petra Resources, for end client PETRONAS, to supply offshore access services offshore Malaysia during the monsoon period.
Stretching from October to February, the monsoon period is renowned for its harsh weather conditions, making conventional offshore transfer methods in the Sarawak area less safe and efficient.
The Ampelmann A-type system compensates all vessel motions, thus providing a stable gangway for transfers, which significantly increases the safety for the workers.
Furthermore, Ampelmann’s systems minimize the amount of vessel waiting on weather days, which results in shorter project duration and lower project costs. The first transfers have been successfully completed in up to 3m significant wave height.
Sander Zwanenburg, Business Development Asia-pacific said, “We thank Petra Resources and Petronas Carigali for their trust in Ampelmann. We look forward to working together towards a safe and efficient project completion, and continuing to build on our strong relationship.”
