The FMT Fixed Telescopic Bridges are mostly used for ferry terminals around the world. FMT started to deliver this kind of Fixed Bridges for ferries already during the 1980’s.
The Fixed Telescopic Bridges are very convenient with a horizontal plane for passenger to walk on when embarking/disembarking a ferry or ship.
The Fixed Telescopic Bridges are hydraulically elevated and telescopic movable to and from the ship.
The design with few moving parts makes this kind of design very well suited for extreme climates like winter, ice and storms.
The most advanced FMT Fixed Telescopic Bridges are radio controlled by a remote operator’s panel located on the ferry and thereby eliminating the need for an operator in the Telescopic Bridge on shore. Examples of this kind of installations are Helsingborg, Sweden and Sassnitz-Mukran, Germany.
