UPTIME balanced gangway long-term proven

December 12th, 2017 | Posted by bh in Gangway | Gangway 23,4 | News - (Comments Off on UPTIME balanced gangway long-term proven)

UPTIME has pioneered using a power-saving mode for its market-leading 23,4m AMC gangway. The gangway has been the benchmark in the offshore wind industry since its introduction, with build number 29 now being finished for Louis Dreyfus Armateurs.

The UPTIME control and hydraulic system is constantly being improved. The power-saving balancing mode, released in October 2016, is now implemented on several gangways. This results in less stress on HPU motors, simple operations for the operators and saves wear and tear on equipment when the gangway is not forcibly run but instead balanced against the TP connection. Inaccuracies in MRUs is also avoided, giving a much calmer operation.

“By using the hydraulic and control system competence gained from making gangways since the late 70s, we have improved upon even the most recent invention, 3-axis active motion compensated gangways. UPTIME continues to develop its gangways, control systems and hydraulics. The balancing of the gangway is the most recent example now being in use for one year. The next release will be autonomous landing of the gangway, which has been tested onshore for about six months. This will give even higher performance, safety and convenience for the user, potentially avoiding using dedicated gangway operators completely” – Bjørnar Huse, Sales and Business Development Director.

“We see that competitors are emerging in the market, and we will keep our focus on giving customers a better system, with attention to the complete operation – gangway and ancillary systems, power consumption, crew usage and passenger safety.” – Svein Ove Haugen, Sales and Marketing Manager
