It is possible to envisage circumstances, for example when serving an undeveloped port or when off a military beachhead, containers while they are in situ of the containership, rather than landing the containers in the normal manner. In such a case it will be necessary to equip the containership in a suitable manner. Typically the equipment involves some kind of lift running the full depth of the hold, and extending through the hatch cover to a handling area above the upper deck, which would be capable of handling the loaded pallet; a hatch cover modified to allow penetration of the hold lift; and a lift or hoist to serve containers stacked up to four high above deck. This Report describes and compares a number of proposed designs for the equipment to be used in the hold. Order from BSRA as No. 50,739.
