Safeway designs and fabricates motion compensated gangway bridges and with its Seagull-type of gangway sets a new standard for motion compensated systems. With year-round workability at 20+ meter above sea level, Safeway redefines the state of affairs in offshore access solutions. Based on proven technology, the application of an additional roll compensation mast provides a spectacular reduction of overall gangway motions. Handled as a “Single lift” and with its “Plug & Play” configuration, the Safeway gangway is very suitable to be utilised on different vessels with minimal installation efforts or modifications to the vessel structure. With its unique hover mode connecting is allowed without physically touching the offshore structure. Operational flexibility is delivered by the 10 meter stepless vertical height adjustment providing safe access at different landing heights under all conditions. Safeway innovates continuously and with Safeway Gannet, purposely designed for smaller SOVs and trolley operations, Safeway is even better prepared for Offshore Wind.
