HATCH COVER SUPPORT FOR PORT CRANE
A SIMPLE SOLUTION
GB Port Innovation, has developed the Hatch Cover Support for port crane, which is a simple solution in order to release the spaces used to put the hatch covers of the ships.
It consists in a platform or a support located on the crane where it is put the hatch cover, while the container is transferred from and to the inside of the ship’s hold.
Depending on the ship size, we design the Hatch Cover Support according to the quantity and weight of the hatch covers, of which stack is required.
If it’s considered in the initial design of a container terminal, you can save on construction of port area.
If it’s used in a existent port terminal, you can recover an area which can be used for the container storage, for the traffic of the carriage equipments and the layout of the port equipments.
It makes possible to increase the storage capacity in about 10%, which could increase the load mobilized in the same proportion.
