Marine Column Gangways
The Column Gangway system is perfect for jetties where there is not a lot of free space and the deck heights can be guaranteed within a certain range. These can range from a few meters below jetty height to approximately 18-20 metres above. The column gangway is fitted with a turntable that allows the gangway (most often a telescoping gangway) to be rotated from a parking position that is parallel to the waterfront, around to the ship, operating through a horizontal angle of 135 degrees. This gives the gangway options for positioning on the deck.
The Column Gangway is a bespoke design built to suit each customer’s particular needs and the physical constraints of the jetty.
Once in position, the hydraulic control system is put into freewheel mode and the gangway can raise and lower without intervention while on the vessel deck.
In addition, the column can be fitted with a crane for moving stores onto the ship, or as an alternative method of deployment of the gangway. It could also support a fire monitor, flood lighting or a control cabin.
The Column Gangway is a simple design and construction which can be quite easily installed on a very small footprint, providing long and reliable life as well as safe and repeatable access to vessels.
