Gangway Tower

Glen column gangway is applicable to the 2- 30 wt dock

The largest benefit  of the gangway-tower is that can cover ship deck levels from Small Barges up to Ultra Large Crude Carriers, in combination with the ship movements (tidal, loading/unloading, drifts etc). Each lift station can be reached by the access stairs and platforms mounted inside the tower structure.

Because of robust design, Gangway tower has a long design life and low maintenance cost.

  • Lift platform
    Gangway Tower has a telescopic gangway that vertically moves along the tower by means of a lift platform.Once the gangway has been positioned on the ship’s deck and reaches its maximum up or down angle, the lift platform will automatically go the next level, without the need for an operator to be present. Also the surge and sway movements of the vessel will be freely followed within its design range. 
  • Hydraulic control
    The gangway movements are powered by hydraulic cylinders, operated by a hydraulic control box mounted on the lift platform. The lift platform movement is powered by a hoisting device (winch or hydraulic cylinder).
  • Option
    many optional features like a (hydraulic) crane, fire monitor(s), control cabin(s) and (metal) coverage for protection of its users against i.e. extreme weather conditions. Also other specific Client requirements can be integrated in the Gangway Tower design.
