The motion-compensated gangway is mounted on a height-adjustable pedestal with an integrated elevator. the pedestal makes it possible for the gangway to land on any height, keeping the gangway horizontal and providing stepless transfers. The system is able to compensate for wave heights up to 3 meters (Hs).
