ARGOS Gangways specifications
ARGOS is uniquely designed for passenger terminal operators who wish to offer cruise vessels and ferry lines a safe and comfortable passenger transit from ship to pier level and vice versa.
ARGOS is equipped with an electro-mechanical elevation system, a hydraulically powered boarding ramp, sensors and a PLC, which all contribute to smart, safe and secure boarding operations. ARGOS complies with most international regulations such as the EN-12312-4.
ARGOS is designed according to the latest technological innovations. The gangway can easily be moved to any location on the quay and can be perfectly adapted to ship door configurations. Once connected, it automatically follows the ship movements and adjusts to tidal ranges.
With a maximum and minimum docking height of respectively 9.5 and 1.1 meters over the quay, ARGOS enables a perfect service envelop for a large variety of cruise and ferry vessels, including those with overhanging lifeboats.
Non-skid flooring, handrails and wide walkway sections for simultaneous embarking and disembarking, make ARGOS ideal for passengers with reduced mobility.
The standard ARGOS design includes a power generator, handrails, lighting, non-skid flooring and solid rubber tires. Optional features such as self-propulsion, tunnel cover, remote control, hurricane tie-downs and a variety of finishes are available.
Quality is a must. All materials are tested for maritime conditions and the manufacturing process is certified in order to guarantee durability. Maintenance tasks can be carried out fast and easy thanks to ADELTE’s direct access design.
