The tilting ramp is designed to have both ends hoistable. There is a choice of two directions for loading/discharging, forward or aft. This will offer greater flexibility for ships with both bow and stern loading and unloading. The ramp consists of a main section with hinged end flaps and when closed, it forms a weathertight closure. A choice can also be made between ramps which, in closed position, form a watertight hatch and ramps without sealing.
Locked in the raised position by hydraulically-operated securing devices, the ramps will form an integral part of the deck surface and can be of lightweight construction. We focus on minimising equipment weight in relation to loading capacity providing greater cargo capacity and lower fuel cost per tonne of freight. Automated operation, either hydraulic or electric.
