Ampelmann will introduce a new balanced gangway system, the S-type, in the first half of 2018, Jan van der Tempel, Ampelmann’s CEO said.
Ampelmann and Seaqualize established a partnership to develop a new balanced gangway system in October 2017.
The two companies are now performing tests on a full-scale prototype, with Seaqualize contributing to the project with its proprietary balancing technology, Van Der Tempel said.
The project is subsidized by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.
