Tweendeck hatch covers and movable bulkhead

The efficient use of cargo space is of utmost importance, particularly when carrying non-standard cargo. Tweendeck hatch covers make it possible to improve cargo carrying efficiency for cargo that can not be stacked.

Folding tweendeck panels

Folding and multi-folding panels in cargo holds are operated hydraulically and available in various arrangements, for example two panels folded aft, four panels folded forward.

Lift-away tweendeck panels

Tweendeck lift-away hatch cover panels can be lifted by ship or shore-based cranes. They are supported by removable and/or foldable consoles and can be placed at several height positions depending on the cargo hold design. They can also be placed in a bulkhead position to segregate cargoes. When not in use, they can be stacked in the hold or on the weather deck.

Tweendeck lift-away hatch cover panels can be designed to act as bulkheads and used to segregate cargoes.

Movable bulkheads are typically operated by connecting them to weather deck folding hatch covers, or by ship or shore cranes. The bulkheads are locked into position either by manually or hydraulically-operated pins. They can be placed at several locations depending on the cargo hold design.
