The gangway is used for safe and smooth boarding and disembarking of crew during the operation process of modern large oil tankers docked at the pier.
Boarding and disembarking are traditionally completed by the accommodation ladder carried by the vessel itself. For modern large oil pier, especially the dolphin pier without cover, the wharf surface is not completely continuous and the elevation is relatively high. During the working process, the ship bumps frequently and the amplitude is large. Due to the large fender, the distance between the side of the ship and the wharf line is very large.
Under such conditions, connection between the ship and the wharf is difficult to solve by the accommodation ladder carried by the ship. Therefore, to speed up the loading and unloading of the ship and to ensure the safety of boarding and disembarking, replacing the ship accommodation ladder with the gangway is an inevitable choice.
The gangway and loading arm have successively become the indispensable equipment for large-scale operation of the oil tanker at the dock.
