"Since installation in 2016, our vessel, Wind Innovation, has completed more than 10,000 transfers using the Uptime gangway. We have never experienced any major breakdowns despite the fact that we have periods with +24 transfers every 24 hours. We are also very satisfied with the aftermarket setup, where we can get 24/7 support to check the gangway in case of any issues without having to arrange a technician coming onboard. All in all, both Operators, Chief Engineer, Captain and everyone from Backoffice are very satisfied with the performance of our Uptime gangway."

Matthias Müller

Managing Director | WINDEA Offshore

"We were pleased that Uptime took our feedback for the 23,4m gangway and developed the new 30m version, which offers more operability. The included crane is a significant enhancement for the operation, too.... "

Emil Rasch

Able seaman | ESVAGT NJORD

"I have a good impression of how the Uptime works. It is easy to control, it works well and have taken account of different circumstances that could arise. If problems arise with the Uptime, they are quick to help, either remotely or by sending people to the location. The courses consist of a basic course and an advanced course. In both they do well to mix it so you first learn the theory of one part, after which you try it on the simulator. That way it is not half a day of theory followed by half a day of simulation. When taking the practical exam you are in an advanced simulator and will try connecting in different weather conditions. Uptime is also open for suggestions from the Uptime operators on how to make improvements."

I am very pleased with the quality of the telescopic gangways and same applies for the quality of the spares and customers service from Uptime.
