Zamakona Yards Hands Over Ro-Ro Dock to Tenerife Container Terminal

Zamakona Yards has delivered the Roll on-Roll off dock built for the Container Terminal of Tenerife (OHL Group).

This innovative elevating structure is the only of its kind in the Canary Islands, permitting a more versatile use of the pier since it will only be employed when vessels with rolling stock arrive (Ro-Ro), permitting the use of the dock for conventional vessels at other times.

It consist of an elevating ramp, 25 meters wide by 20 meters long, for vessels docking at this point in Tenerife. The ramp, which weighs 170 tons is designed to support rolling cargos of 54 tons and static cargos of 30 tons.

The ramp is equipped with an ultimate generation electrical system which permits it to be raised to a vertical position when not being used, leaving the dock free to accommodate conventional vessels.

With this last construction, Zamakona Yards moves to the Forefront of Spanish shipyards in the construction and installation of Ro-Ro ramps in the Canary Islands and The Iberian Peninsula as well as to the vanguard worldwide in the design and construction of this type of structure.
