Ampelmann and Vroon Engaged at Gemini Windfarm

VOS Prime with Ampelmann A type W2W gangwayAmpelmann has been awarded a contract by Vroon Offshore Services for a Walk to Work (W2W) campaign at the Gemini Windfarm.

Ampelmann successfully mobilised an A-type gangway system on the Vos Prime multirole platform supply vessel, holding SPS notation for 52 persons on board and engaged in W2W operations at the offshore sub-stations since end June 2017. More than 400 people transfers have already taken place within the first week of the project.

The expertise of Vroon’s and Ampelmann’s engineering teams has resulted in the A-type being positioned on VOS Prime’s deck allowing the ‛weather-window’ performance (i.e. the maximum limit of the combined environmental forces such as wind and sea state, whereby passenger transfers can be safely performed) to be combined with a significant clear-deck space of about 550mavailable for cargo carrying capacity.
