Cargo Securing Systems

cargo securing systems

PALFINGER's marine business has developed a new and innovative system for moving and securing cargo on board PSV’s. The system is designed to fit any kind of vessel design.

The cargo securing system offers:

  • Hydraulic drive
  • Number of lines according to customer’s specification
  • Securing carriers per line: 2
  • Pull force (each line) between 15 to 20 metric tons

Each hydraulic cylinder has a pulling force of 3-5 tonnes. With a friction coefficient of 0,2 it manages to pull loads of 15-20 tonnes each. By using two lines, cargo with up to 40 tonnes can be pulled on deck. The system can move cargo at a speed of around 6-12 m/min. Each securing carrier can be placed anywhere along the sliding rails. The carrier is easily connected to the sliding line by pushing down a handle. The pulling faces of the securing carriers are interchangeable to ease pulling and securing of different types of cargo, such as containers, pipes etc.

Each securing carrier can be placed anywhere along the sliding rails. The carrier is easily connected to the sliding line by pushing down a handle. The pulling faces of the securing carriers are interchangeable to ease pulling and securing of different types of cargo, such as containers, pipes etc.

By using multiple sliding securing carriers on each sliding line, cargo can be secured on both sides of the vessel.

The securing carriers safely secures the cargo during transit. Once the carrier is secured, it is released from the pulling system and other cargo can be pulled and secured using the same sliding line.

The system is operated by hydraulic cylinders a radio remote control unit. This ensures low maintenance costs and smooth operation. Each line is fitted with one hydraulic cylinder connected to the sliding line for pushing/pulling the securing carriers and cargo against the cargo rail. 

The system is delivered as a complete package. HPU can be delivered as an option if this is not available on the vessel. There is no yard supply required for the cargo securing system. A “standard” delivery will consist of 7 - 11 cargo securing system lines.

  • Weight of sliding rail: 80 kg/m
  • Weight of securing carrier: 24 kg each

 

Each line consists of:

  • One off complete sliding line (to be welded directly onto cargo deck on vessel).
  • One off hydraulic cylinder is delivered as an integrated part of the sliding line.
  • Two off securing carriers (one for each direction). Multiple securing carriers for each sliding line can be delivered.
