A MULTI-PURPOSE LINKSPAN FOR USE WITH ALL TYPES OF RO-RO FERRIES INCLUDING WAVE PIERCING CATAMARANS AND HIGH SPEED SHIPS

The paper discusses the design and construction of the ro-ro interface (linkspan) for the Port of Dieppe on the north coast of France. The integral tank linkspan was chosen for its many advantages. It was the least attractive in weather conditions as the movement of both linkspan and ship had to be taken into account. The depth of its tank was such as to allow it to reach a maximum freeboard at low tide of 6.5 metres which was sufficient to accommodate the initial requirements the new Stena HSS.
