APT Global successfully mobilizes Ampelmann heave compensating gangway

January 6, 2016


APT Global has recently supported Dutch company Ampelmann with the installation of one of their A-type heave compensating gangways on board offshore supply vessel “Topaz Commander”.

This equipment is used for safe transfer of personnel between vessels and platforms offshore using a hydraulic self-stabilizing system compensating for relative movement between vessels.

APT Global was contracted for the construction of foundation pedestal, maintenance platform and grillages under ABS supervision as well as the turn-key installation of the system on board of the vessel under supervision of both Ampelmann and consultancy firm Royal Roos from the Netherlands.

We thank Ampelmann and Royal Roos for this opportunity and the pleasant cooperation.
