Gangways are narrow passages that provide access from dock to ship. The telescopic gangways designed by Prosertek provide an optimum and safe way to bridge installations, even under the toughest environmental conditions.
Our products are designed to meet our customer’s highest requirements, and can be supplied with different configurations: as tower type or column type, or even our advanced passenger boarding bridges, with their engineered systems focused on compensating the relative movements between the interconnected elements and the different height in between platforms.
The purpose of this equipment is to facilitate the transit of people ship-to-ground, for terminals related to the oil and gas industry.
Gangway ship design
Prosertek designs, manufactures and installs each gangway according to the following parameters:
Specific location on the berth or jetty:
- Features of the berth (crown height, tide races).
- Characteristics of vessels, their drift once berthed, etc.
The designs may be column type (Gangway) or tower type (Catway). The tower system incorporates a mobile element with elevator technology that provides for extending the range of action vertically.
Likewise, the telescopic system of the aluminum access ladders and the different tilting and turning devices enable full operational capability.
The facilities devoted to the manufacture of our gangways are in Europe, where we have a specially-prepared platform to simulate the final installation of the completely assembled gateway and perform a complete check-list prior to delivery to the final destination.
