Increase UPTIME Through Safe Access

Gangway operator certification

Gangway operators are an important part of a successful use of offshore gangways.

UPTIME offers certified gangway operators for hire, or we can train the ship crew to become competent, certified operators.

Our course is also accredited by an external body and is modelled after offshore crane certification procedures. The academy is operated through our parent company Marine Aluminium, see more info HERE

There is no specific approval for gangways as of now. We are working with Det norske Veritas to get a type approval for our two generic models, the 19,4m and 40m.

The gangways are of course approved after NORSOK and other HSEQ scemes.


The Uptime helideck is HCA approved and is based on the Marine Aluminium helideck with its UK CAA: CAP 437, Norwegian CAA: BSL D5-1 SOLAS approvals.

The roll compensation model will make it possible to have the helideck upgraded at least one class on the same vessel.
