RoRo Equipment for the Largest Car Ferry

The comprehensive RoRo equipment outfit on Irish Ferries’ RoPax newbuilding Ulysses includes the longest bow ramp yet produced by MacGREGOR and a package of six passenger/service elevators. This world’s largest car ferry in terms of vehicle capacity and deadweight tonnage has a vehicle deck capacity totaling 4,080 lane-metres offers space for a combination of 260 articulated truck and trailer units or 1,300 cars. The RoRo capacity is arranged on four fixed decks with the fourth fixed deck marking a new feature for RoPax ferries.

Separate bow and stern access arrangements for the main and upper freight decks secure good drive-through vehicle handling efficiency on two levels. Two axial stern ramp/doors are arranged port and starboard on the main deck.

Each has a length of 8m (+ 2m end flaps) and offers a driveway of 9.7m/10.2m on to the main trailer deck via a 10.1m-wide x 5.2m-high clear opening. The bow door has two sections, yielding a clear opening 7.0m wide x 6m high. The bow ramp has three sections, with an overall length of 20m (+ 2m end flaps) and offering a 6m driveway into a clear opening 6m wide x 5.2m high. This is the longest bow ramp of its type yet installed by MacGREGOR.
