Ampelmann has signed a contract with McDermott, an offshore engineering and construction company. This is the first project in which an Ampelmann system, in this case the A-type Enhanced Performance (AEP), is used offshore in the East Coast of India. It will also be the first time McDermott makes use of an Ampelmann system in India.

The project, with a duration of approximately 50 days, is taking place during monsoon in India. Strong winds, high waves and mostly unpredictable weather conditions can slow down or even put work on hold during this season. The Ampelmann AEP system was, thus, the suitable choice for these conditions.

The AEP makes full use of Ampelmann’s motion compensation technology, enabling safe personnel transfers in sea states up to 4m Hs, allowing for more uptime and higher efficiency, also during monsoon.

“While it will be the first time for Ampelmann to operate on the East Coast of India, it definitely isn’t our first time operating during monsoon,” said Vincent Chua, Ampelmann’s Commercial Manager in Singapore. “Our systems have continuously proven themselves during the monsoon season, maximising operational availability and safety for the offshore crew. With an increased uptime, we can reduce the amount of waiting on weather (WOW) days and decrease the overall duration of projects.”

The Ampelmann AEP was mobilised in Singapore on the MVW Falcon during strict lockdown regulations as set by the local government because of COVID-19. Ampelmann’s local team in Singapore managed to execute the mobilisation on short notice, proving the importance of local setups in order to be of the best possible service to their clients during challenging times.
