SMS-SME Folding hatch cover
SMS-SME Folding hatch cover

SMS-SME is designing and producing various capacity ship use folding hatch covers from 3000DWT to 60000DWT Class bulk carriers driven by hyd. cylinder with control device and reliable power unit resulting more than 200 shipset. The Single folding-type Hatch Cover is a pair consisting of two panels and is driven by a hydraulic cylinder. When the cylinder pushes the panels through the end hinge arm, the hatch cover is folded and moves along the rail at the same time and opened fully. The single folding-type hatch cover can be operated from a specific hatch as necessary. SMS-SME designs and manufactures cleat, wheel, and hinge components to be placed at the most suitable location for smooth operation. The multi folding-type hatch cover consists of a Leading pair and Trailing pair driven by hydraulic cylinder and bell crank respectively. When the leading pair is folded vertically, the trailing pair is pulled up to the stowage position and all hatch covers are opened in sequence. SMS-SME minimizes the stowage space when all hatch covers are fully opened, so the loading space in the cargo hold is increased and loading/unloading of cargo can be easy. SMS-SME supplies hatch covers to multi-purpose carriers which is designed to load various types of cargoes concurrently depending on the types and routes of ships. In case of mixed types of bulk and container ships, various types of cargoes can be loaded effectively by installing folding and pontoon type hatch covers on Weather deck and Tween deck.

Lift-away hatch covers for general cargo ships MacGregor hatch covers enable your general cargo vessels to carry various deck cargoes and form functional cargo areas to facilitate flexible cargo handling operations. When in an open position they provide access to the hold for loading and discharging cargo and when closed they seal the hatchway in a weathertight manner. MacGregor offers both single-panel and multi-panel lift-away hatch covers. Multi-panel covers comprise several separate panels for each hatch opening. They are generally used for multi-purpose cargo ships carrying heavy cargo and usually have transverse joints. Tweendeck lift-away hatch covers are designed for the cargo hold and operated by ship or shore-based cranes. Their purpose is to carry various cargoes and divide cargo areas into compartments that support flexible cargo operations. They can be used for segregating cargoes and their efficient utilisation can increase a vessel’s cargo intake. Tweendeck lift-away hatch covers are supported by removable or foldable consoles and can be designed to be located at several height positions or also function as bulkheads. Lift away hatch covers for containers ships MacGregor lift-away hatch covers on a container ship enables your vessel to carry deck cargo, split the container stack between hold and deck and to prevent water ingress into the cargo hold. Depending on a container ship’s width, one to five panels cover each hold opening. The weight of an individual panel can be up to 45 tonnes. Lift-away panels are handled with a spreader using either shore-side container cranes or the vessel’s own cranes. The panels can be stacked together on the quay and/or on the ship’s deck. MacGregor hatch covers can be equipped with special fittings, as required: for example, with stanchion sockets for loading timber, container fittings, cement/grain feed hatches, and ventilation hatches or water spray arrangements for dangerous cargoes.
