offshore service vessel gangway / telescopic / motion-compensated / hydraulic
for offshore service vessels
SMST provides a wide range of Telescopic Access Bridges (TAB) for safe and easy transfer of personnel to and from an offshore structure or quay side. Depending on the TAB version, functions like luffing, slewing and telescoping are performed hydraulically or fully electrically. Smart design has resulted in light-weight bridges and low power consumption.
SMST Telescopic Access Bridges are subdivided into 4 categories: S, M, L and XL, varying in length from 4 up to 58 meters.
The S version can be combined with our 13.5 and 24 meter Fast Offshore Craft. The S and M types are primarily developed for the Walk-to-Work application, whereas the L and XL versions are more suitable for the long-term connection between offshore structures and accommodation service vessels and the like. All bridges can be deployed for cargo handling and are available for rent.
