Lashing of these deck-containers and handling the hatches is then no longer necessary. This hatchless construction saves a lot of work and time during unloading or loading the vessel; in addition, the danger of losing containers in a storm is fully avoided. Nedlloyd and other stevedores have built a number of these hatchless vessels. Nedlloyd states that they achieved 10–15 percent greater productivity, although now all containers have to be hoisted over the higher cell-guides. The well-known Dutch naval architect Ir.

The end point of the trajectory should be almost at the centre of the hopper. Care should be taken with the hatch opening. Fig. 2 Grab unloader Aûerage capacity The material-handling manager is also very interested in the average capacity of the unloader. Defining the average capacity per hour is more complicated because it depends upon how the start and finish of the job are measured. It is defined as The total amount of material that has been discharged during a longer period of time diûided by the number of hours.
