Cradle Tween Decks
The Langh Cargo Solutions’ Cradle Tween Deck is a safe transport method for steel coils.
Heavy steel coils have traditionally been transported on the tank top in the bottom of a ship’s cargo hold. This makes the ship’s centre of gravity too low and the ship’s movements at sea very violent.
The coils could not be stowed higher, however, because no solution existed whereby coils weighing 25 to 30 tons could be reliably fastened to, for example, tween decks. IMO rules even forbade the transportation of heavy steel coils on tween decks.
