Safeway integrates sustainability in every step of the lifecycle of our projects, from development to recycling.
As a family business, it's only logical we keep the next generation in mind.
Sustainability is a key topic for Safeway; it contributes to the Company’s vision to provide Safe, Sustainable and Affordable Transfers at Sea. Sustainability objectives are integrated in the core of the Company and aimed at creating value for Safeway’s stakeholders to provide context for Safeway’s targets and performance.
ISO 14001 certified
The Company is committed to the energy transition through the development of sustainable solutions. Safeway’s ambition is to integrate sustainability in every step of the long lifecycle of our projects, starting from new technological development to the recycling phase.

Safeway vs Benchmark
Power consumption & Vessel fuel
Power consumption in kW
(W2W duties at Beaufort windforce 7)
Vessel fuel consumption in ton per day
(during W2W operations)
Five reasons why Safeway is
the most sustainable choice
ISO 14001 certified
Safeway is ISO 14001 (environment management) certified, accredited by independent third party Bureau Veritas. Safeway is dedicated to the environment management to reduce environmental impact where feasible.
35% decrease in power consumption
Gangway itself has 35% reduction in power consumption compared to benchmark motion compensated gangways.
30-40% fuel reduction
Vessel will reduce 30%-40% of fuel consumption to drive propellers and keep position in case Safeway is used. This is due to:
Larger range, relaxed DP plot
25% Larger telescoping range (10 meters instead of 8 meters) allows relaxed DP plot on vessel. The vessel can move around at greater distance, whilst keeping the connection with offshore structure, resulting in significant vessel fuel reduction.
Hover mode: Less fuel consumption
Safeway’s unique “Hover mode” does not push like the commonly used “Bumper mode”. With “Bumper mode” the 1000kg push must be continuously compensated by the vessels propeller, resulting in significant fuel consumption. With “Hover mode” this is eliminated.
Circularity passport; Safeway commits to the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) phylosophy and that our gangways are all equipped with circulair passport which identifies the raw materials used and how these can be recycled. In the design of the Safeway the recycling has taken an important role to optimise the recycling
Suitable for biodegradable oil
Suitable for using Biodegradable oil. Safeway’s hydraulic unit is electrically driven. The hydraulic oil could result into negative impact when spilled in the ocean. To prevent negative impact, bio degradable oil can be delivered as an option included in the power pack.
