Self-stabilizing platform "Ampelmann“
This platform, which has been given the name “Ampelmann”, is used on the open sea. It automatically compensates all wave movements, so that safe work can be done on oil platforms from a ship base. For this purpose, the platform is supported by several hydraulic cylinders. The energy supply to the platform is guaranteed by igus® triflex® R energy chains.
