N-Type Ampelmann due to enter operation shortlyEquipment & Technology // July 24, 2017
Ampelmann's first N-type ‘Icemann’ offshore access system is due to enter operations at the beginning of August.
Before leaving The Netherlands, the N-type was tested in the North Sea. After the trials, Russian vessel operator Sovcomflot’s ice-class vessel Stepan Makarov arrived in Rotterdam for the system to be mobilised.
The vessel is now on its six week voyage to Sakhalin, Russia. The vessel and N-Type access system will be used by Sakhalin Energy on the Sakhalin-2 field.
