In 2004 we designed and built a mechanical ramp for port operations. This ramp is to be used for barges carrying containers from neighbouring islands. The ramp is designed for carrying truck and trailer load of up to 65 ton and is built in accordance to BS5400 and BS6349 standards. One end is hinged at the shore end while the other end is controlled by two-30 ton electric chain hoists and winches. Control is automated for up/down operation to cater to tidal condition as well as the draft of the vessel. The operator can choose to either control from the control box or a remote control pendant.
This ramp was so useful for the port operation that in 2007, Jurong Port contracted us to build two similar units for them.
