M.V. ATLANTIC SPAN TESTS NAVIRE CARGO GEAR BUILT ON-DECK CELL GUIDE SYSTEM

Atlantic Container Line <ACL> is engaged on a major test programme to examine the practicability of a cell guide system for containers carried on deck of a container ship. The new system is intended to improve cargo turnround times by eliminating the need for lashing of those containers carried on deck. Trials with three different configurations of on-deck bays are now in progress aboard the ACL roll-on/roll-off container ship Atlantic Span.
