MULTI PURPOSE CONTAINER SHIPS




MULTI PURPOSE CONTAINER SHIPS
 
Typical general cargo/container ship. These were the fore runners of the true modern multi purpose vessels, and are general cargo ships that have been converted the carry containers as well as general cargo. Almost all have retained deck gear by way of cranes or sometimes derricks, but some ships have had their gear removed.


Many operators are now using multi-purpose container ships (MPP). These vessels are capable of carrying general, bulk, and deck cargo as well as containers, and are normally geared with cranes. Both cable luffing and hydraulic cranes are shown in these examples.

Such ships maximise capacity as they can still be well loaded with other cargo even though there is not enough containers to fill the ship.
Shown here is another type of general purpose ship that is designed to carry containers and vehicles. It also carries containers on ro-ro cassettes. The stern is the same as a pure vehicle/truck carrier with a large stern ramp. It also has its own cranes.
