VIDEO: Uptime's Gangway Used at Borkum West OWF

Uptime 23,4m AMC gangway has been used during operation at the Borkum West offshore wind farm.

To access Borkum West’s wind turbines and substation, the 3-axis compensated UPTIME gangway was attached on the Island Crown vessel from Island Offshore. The gangway is 23,4m long and has a height adjustable pedestal.

The following video shows accessing Borkum West’s wind turbines and substation by using Uptime’s system:
