Gangway Load Testing With Water Bags

Hydro-Wates offers personnel and equipment to proof load test ladders, gangways, and davits using cylinder-shaped water bags and other specialized equipment. Our cylinder-shaped water bags, nominally rated to 375 kg and 500 kg each, allow for a more uniform distribution of the applied force. Hydro-Wates cylinder water bags can be positioned along the length of the gangway/ladder to simulate service loading and enable function testing of the deployment winch system.

When using our cylinder-shaped water bags, water volume is accurately metered into each water bag using municipal grade water meters, accurate to +/- 1% of metered volume, and which are provided with calibration certificates. You can trust Hydro-Wates to provide premium industrial-grade water bag equipment and superior on-site service on all of your proof load testing projects. We will travel directly to your vessel or dry dock to perform your test. Call us today for a free cost estimate or technical discussion of your testing requirements.
