JRC and Alphatron Marine today launched the brand new and simplistic designed AlphaBridge Inland, targeted at ships sailing on the inland waterways that require to lower the wheelhouse when passing one of the many low bridges on the rivers and canals.
Many bridges and locks on the European waterways offer a headroom from 7 to 9 meters, however according to the actual water and trim level, the height of the wheelhouse can be a serious threat. Developed together with a captain from Avalon river cruising on how to optimize all aspects of operations, this new concept is based on the principle that the captain should have the best achievable ergonomic and safe working position.
This innovative bridge solution suitable for passenger ships, tankers, cargo and other inland vessel enables the captain not to be in an uncomfortable situation when passing a low bridge. Instead, with the wheelhouse lowering, the control panels can also be electronically shifted down to a lower level providing undistracted focus and seamless operation. With the ability for the captain to move to the feet rest gives an unseen and unique flexibility to fully control and guide the vessel.
The design approach enables optimized viewing in the wheelhouse and full control from a sitting position – facilitating a height difference of up to 50 cm. Flexible layout and ergonomic control are one of the leading principles in our design approach, regardless size and type of vessel. The AlphaBridge Inland enables intuitive, comfortable operation which ultimately enhances the safety of your vessel, crew and passengers.
