This past Wednesday, January 15, Zamakona Yards carried out the load testing and delivery of the movable ramp for the roll on roll off dock built for the Container Terminal of Tenerife (OHL Group). Zamakona  said the 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. In the raised position, none of the components protrude more than two meters from the edge.

When inclined, it will descend to an angle from the dock from 5.2-2.9 meters above the equinoctial low tide.

This elevating Ro-Ro Ramp is the first of this type by the Basque-Canarian Group and the 11th of the total ramps built, having fabricated in the last 22 years conventional ramps for different public administrations including; The Port Authority of Las Palmas, The Port Authority of Bilbao, The Port Authority of Pasajes, Naviera Armas and in this last cas, The OHL Group of Tenerife.
