Looks like some missunderstanding . Mentioned small gantry o/b of Scot RANGER 2 , and few other Scot Line vessels are installed only for the hatchcovers . Open/ close . No other purpose. Scot Line vessels are mainly designated for cargo of timber , logs or ( sometimes ) wood pulp. Ocassionally they load silica sand in Antwerp for Varberg of Sweden. FYI Lorna ... There are couple of combinations possible to stack hatchcovers .
My experience with varrious McGregor systems is very long . I served at sea over 40 years . One of my last compannies was Scot Line ( my contract o/b of m/v Scot Carrier terminated in February 2005 . By the way ...
My previous post is my private opinion only . I promise to respect all others.
With best regards .

Mini gantry crane for moving portable bulkheads? We used to have to use the first hatch for moving bulkheads on the older style MacGregor system which meant that all had to be stacked to release the aft most hatch. Just a thought. Lorna Brown.

Thank You for the info ... Looks like ScotLine (Inntada Shimmanagement ) is coming back to Dutch Shipbuilders ... Folding ( multifolding) MacGregor system installed on previous SCOT RANGER and first PIONEER / TRADER are much easier to operate for ship's crew . Dutch system with very complicate sequence , mini gantry crane etc is real oddity . As I can remember , rearrangement of the hatchcovers o/b of similar SCOT VENTURE needs 40 - 45 minutes . Its very long time !!! Especially when on the jetty are waiting a lot of crazy / screaming people ( like in Rochester - Scot Line Terminal ) .
