Gangway access systems
More than 1000 shore access systems for oil and gas terminals in 70 countries around the world. Since supplying the first gangway system in 1966, we have developed a large number of standard designs, which are flexible to be adapted according to specific customer requirements.
Basically there are three main designs:
- Tower gangway type, with a telescopic gangway that moves vertically along the tower by means of a lifting platform. Thanks to its lifting platform, the tower gangway can cover all levels of the ship deck, from small barges to ultra-large crude carriers, in combination with ship movements resulting from tidal movements, loading and unloading, and wave movements
- Column gangway typewith a telescopic gangway at a fixed height. The column type is suitable for reaching ship deck levels from well below to a maximum of approximately 18 meters above the jetty deck
- Riding ladder can be used when the variation of ship deck levels is limited and sufficient space is available on the jetty deck
Due to their proven and robust design, all our access gangways have a long service life and low maintenance cost.
Access gangways are widely used in the oil industry.
