The Uptime Gangway 19.4 is a well-known construction from Marine Aluminium:
The Uptime Gangway has a nominal length of 19,4m. The telescope function is +/- 4m, it adds or subtracts 4m from the nominal length.
The Uptime control software enables three operating modes:
Landing Mode: The Gangway will be compensated actively during the landing procedure. After the gangway has been landed it will be put into passive mode, making the gangway follow the relative movements as long as needed.
Constant load mode: The gangway will be motion compensated actively during the landing procedure. After landing the gangway will be positioned relative to the landing point, maintaining stable pressure on the landing point.
Hover mode: Focusing on landing the gangway as smooth as possible, the gangway will use active motion compensation (AMC) mode to position and maintain the gangway tip at a fixed point relative to the landing area on a fixed installation.
We offer a range of accessories and customisations for other applications, see our accessory list or contact us for more information.
