Telescopic Access Bridge M-series

SMST is currently building the first series of five Telescopic Access Bridge (TAB)-M systems. Recently, the first bridge has been completed and will be delivered to a client for rental use.


Please note that the modular access bridge with active motion compensation is suitable for a variety of vessels and operational situations. It is of compact design, easy to transport, can be mobilized quickly in one lift and has a large operational window. The system can be operated by the vessel’s crew, does not need large generators and is inexpensive to operate. Due to these key assets, SMST’s access system M series has gained a lot of interest from multiple offshore operators. Two of the five systems being made have been contracted for rental use.


The M series is part of a range of four types of access bridge systems offered by SMST. These include the S, M, L and XL series, which vary in length from 4m up to 58m and can be active or passive motion controlled. The S, M and L are primarily developed for walk-to-work applications and the L and XL are more suitable for long-term connections between offshore structures and accommodation service vessels. All the systems can be deployed for cargo handling and are available for purchase or rent.
