Marseille debuts ro-ro ramp

October 27 - The largest ro-ro ramp in France is now operational at Marseille Fos following a EUR2.7 million (USD3.13 million) eight-month build that was managed by the Marseille Fos port authority in support of a nuclear energy construction project.

With a total weight capacity of 880 tonnes, including payloads of up to 600 tonnes, the ramp was specifically designed for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project in Cadarache, southern France.

Work at the site started in 2013 and will require delivery of some 200 exceptional loads over the next six years. Priority will be given to this traffic but the ramp will also be available for other heavy loads.

The ITER initiative involves 35 countries including the European Union nations, the USA, Russia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and Australia.
