Motion compensated gangway

"L-Bow" motion compensated gangway

A current topic in the offshore market is safe transfer of personnel and equipment from ships to fixed installations at sea, such as platforms and wind turbines. For this purpose a to 40ft container size foldable gangway called the "L-Bow" is developed. This gangway can move hydraulically, in order to compensate wave movements. This creates a relative to the fixed installation stationary gangway, enabling people to step over safely. In close cooperation with the manufacturer of the prototype - PTS Machinery BV - we designed the hydraulic system, delivered the components and installed and commissioned the complete system. Currently we are busy with the fine-tuning of the system, the (preparations for) sea trials and approval by the Notified Body.
