Ampelmann, the global leader in offshore oil & gas access solutions, has secured its first contract for Petronas in Malaysia to supply safe offshore access services in Sarawak waters during the monsoon period.

First safe transfers in Malaysia.

Ampelmann, the global leader in offshore oil & gas access solutions, has secured its first contract for Petra Resources Sdn Bhd, with end client Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd in Malaysia to supply safe offshore access services in Sarawak waters during the monsoon period. Stretching from October to February, the monsoon period is renowned for its harsh weather conditions, making conventional offshore transfer methods 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’ (WOW) days, which results in shorter project duration and lower project costs. The first transfers have been successfully completed in up to 3,0 m significant wave height.

Sander Zwanenburg, Business Development Asia-pacific: “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.”
