Ampelmann has signed a contract to support maintenance work on a FPSO unit in Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire). An A-type motion-compensated gangway has been fitted to MMA Offshore’s DP2 vessel, the MMA Privilege, and has arrived at location.

In the coming years, an A-type gangway will ensure smooth and continuous crew change operations from the MMA Privilege to the FPSO. Alongside its flagship system, Ampelmann will provide technical and logistical assistance. Trained Ampelmann operators, together with a 24/7 support hotline, will facilitate continuous work on the FPSO and ensure all-round increases in workability.

“This is a tried and tested combination,” said Lorenz Nehring, Ampelmann’s Business Developer for Africa, “and we would like to thank MMA and our end client for once again putting their trust in us. We take pride in our systems and this long-lasting partnership allows us to showcase our commitment to efficiency and safety in a region we have become intimately familiar with.”

“Ampelmann systems are known for their reliability,” added Nehring, “and as a global company we understand that each region we operate in is different and has its specific needs. We have become accustomed to adjusting to local situations and our long-term experience as a global offshore access provider will undoubtedly be hugely beneficial to the Western African energy market.”
