A hose tower is used to support (multiple) hoses from the jetty to (oil) tankers for loading and unloading. A hose tower is a steel construction that contains hoses, one or more telescopic cranes, hydraulic winches, sliding beams and hose buns. The crane hoist the hose on board of the vessel. The winch and sliding beam support the hoses during handling.
Because a hose tower contains multiple hoses it can be used for (un)loading different products (simultaneously). The number of hoses can be adjusted to meet the demands of the clients. A hose tower is a flexible solution for handling hoses. The main advantages are:
- Time saving (faster loading);
- Flexibility (used for a wide range of products);
- Compact (multiple hoses in one construction);
- Easy of use.
