A bridge to the Far East

Van der Vlist recently shipped a telescopic access bridge from the manufacturer’s quay in the northern Netherlands to its final destination Nantong shipyard. The door-to-door journey of this 32-tonne access bridge was fully co-ordinated by Van der Vlist. With a length of 35 metres, a width of over 3 metres and a height of nearly 6 metres a barge was required for the transport to Antwerp Port.

After having arrived safely at the port of Shanghai, the access bridge was transshipped to another barge for on-carriage to its final destination. The telescopic access bridge will be used to transfer personnel safely to an accommodation unit offshore or to the quayside. In the recent past telescopic access bridges even larger than this one (35.5 x 7 x 9m LxWxH, 85 tonnes) have been safely transported door-to-door under the supervision of Van der Vlist.
