Ampelmann’s access solution for Premier’s Solan field

Ampelmann will provide one of its offshore access solutions to enable “walk to work” for a commissioning campaign on Premier Oil’s Solan field, West of Shetland in the UK.

Ampelmann’s E-type system will enable workers to walk onto the Solan platform from Siem Spearfish, the multi-purpose service vessel chartered by Harkand, the company hired by Premier Oil to support the activities on the Solan field development.

The E-type provides a stable transfer platform in conditions of up to 4.5 meters wave height. It is based on the same self-stabilizing technology as the A-Type, but with cylinders sized up 1.5 times.

“Contributing to a commissioning project in this challenging area is a significant milestone for Ampelmann and further reinforces our position as the global leader in motion controlled offshore access”, said Wiebe Emsbroek, Area Manager Europe at Ampelmann.

“This safe and efficient way of transferring personnel offshore has become a viable and effective alternative to other transfer methods and Amplemann is extremely pleased to set the standard in safety again in this landmark project.”
