(de-) mobilization

During the summer of 2017 Franklin Offshore Europe BV was awarded the contract by Ampelmann for two mobilizations of their harsh environment motion compensated gangway, the Icemann or N-type. The first mobilization was the installation of temporary sea fastening for the sea trials of the N-type onboard the Vos Prime. After successful sea trials the system was demobilized from the Vos prime and temporarily stored.

Some weeks later the new built Sakhalin-2 standby vessel, Stepan Makarov arrived in Rotterdam and the high skilled crew of Franklin Offshore Europe Fabrication installed the Icemann permanently onboard this vessel. All to full satisfaction of Russian class and Ampelmann.
