The design of the mobile gangway incorporates all
safety factors that can be envisaged. Besides the sensors to to
monitor drifting, surging and tidal changes, anti-collision sonic
sensors are also installed to prevent the gangway from colliding
into anything placed on the wharf deck.
Closed Circuit Televisions
(CCTV) are also incorporated for the operator to monitor human
movements both on the wharf deck as well as boarding and
disembarkation from the ship.
Besides a main control panel at the building end, a remote control pendant
is also mounted at the ship end to help control all hydraulic
function of the mobile gangway. This function is useful as it
enables the operator to control the mobile gangway from the ship end
to ensure a safe and accurate docking when precision is called for.
