New gangway design
Kenz Cranes recently unveiled a new design for an advanced and multifunctional offshore gangway construction with an X-wing foundation.
The design of the fully motion compensated gangway will be used for personnel transfer to wind turbines.
The X-wing allows to keep maximum deck space on a vessel and brings an advantage for existing vessels in case of replacement, the company said. Because of this appliance a 360⁰ reach can be realized.The DNV GL-certified gangway can also be used for full motion compensated offshore lifts with crane hook attachment. Lees meer
