Ampelmann has recently secured a new contract off the coast of Nigeria. The A-type system was mobilised on the Horizon Enabler vessel to perform Walk to Work (W2W) services for a major IOC in the region. This is the company’s first project together with Horizon Maritime onboard their multifunctional offshore support vessel.
“We are excited about the opportunity to work together with Horizon Maritime and to deliver a flexible and reliable W2W solution,” said David Inman, Manager Sales & Business Development – Africa at Ampelmann. “Together, we are looking forward to contributing to safer and more efficient offshore access in the region.”
The Horizon Enabler vessel has a 100-tonne/2,000-metre subsea crane, ability to house two working class ROVs and room to accommodate over 120 PAX. The addition of the Ampelmann A-type with a landing range of 10 to 22 metres and the ability to work in sea states up to 3m Hs offers a reliable W2W solution.
The campaign started in mid-October and will continue for a duration of at least one month. The vessel-gangway combination will become available in late Q4 2019 to help our next client make offshore access as easy as crossing the street.
