Access Gangway Systems

Home » Access Gangway Systems

We design, produce, and deliver modern access gangway systems, which are easy to change according to customer demands. These systems are used to enable personnel and crew a safe access to ship and shore. Gangways are designed to follow the ships movements due to changing tides and changing in draft during loading and discharge, as well as the ship’s surge, sway, and heave motions. The access gangway systems can be fully automatic in standard execution or tailor-made to meet your requirements.

Various options for your access gangway systems

We can integrate and deliver:

  • Access Towers
  • Telescopic gangways with self-levelling steps
  • Electric or hydraulic cranes
  • Firefighting equipment
  • Control cabins
  • In explosion-proof execution (Ex)
  • (Ex) radiographic remote control systems
  • Working conditions from tropical to arctic

Own test facility

A gangway is a safety product. In addition to providing access, a gangway also provides an escape route in dangerous situations. The installations of Gangway Solutions are fully tested to guarantee the safest access and exit at all times. The factory test (FAT), inspection, and full acceptance test will be done on our own test facility prior to shipping under survey of any well-known survey company. We cooperate with renowned certification agencies like Bureau Veritas, Lloyd’s Register, SGS, American Bureau of Shipping, and Det Norske Veritas.
