Movable ramps / tiltable

MacGregor ramps are designed to be safe, efficient and economicsl to run, while fully meeting specific operating requirements. They enable the more efficient use of cargo spaces than fixed ramps and are installed between deck levels and the hoistable car deck.
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 a closed position, form a watertight hatch and ramps without sealing.
Locked in the raised position by hydraulically-operated securing devices, the ramps 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. This provides a greater cargo carrying capacity and lowers the fuel costs per tonne of freight carried. Automated operation, either via hydraulic or electric drives, further enhances efficiency.

Many ships with RoRo capabilities incorporate vehicle access by the bow as well as by the stern, this enables efficient cargo flow and quick turnarounds in port.
Load Monitor System (LMS)
MacGregor patented Load Monitor System (LMS) boosting the load capacity of the ramp and providing more flexibility for heavier project cargo.
Movable ramps / hoistable
MacGregor hoistable ramps make more efficient use of available cargo spaces than fixed ramps; ramps are available as both sealed and un-sealed versions
We design and deliver quarter ramps and doors which are safe, efficient, economical to run and fully meet regulatory and specific operating requirements.
Tailored MacGregor side ramps considerably increase loading and discharging capacity; they double as a weathertight door when closed.
