Multi-Apron Ramp Facility

Location: Horseshoe Bay, British Columbia

Project Type: Development and design of automated multi-apron steel ramp facilities

Client: BC Ferry Corporation


VJA specializes in the development and design of multi-apron ramp structures. These multi-apron ramps are designed for smooth transition of cars and trucks from land to ship or barge at all tidal conditions. This multi-apron system can significantly improve loading and unloading operations without requiring long and expensive ramp structures.

A multi-apron ramp facility can be fully controlled by an automatic hydraulic lifting system, thus eliminating the need for high tower structures. This in turn provides a safe, aesthetically pleasing structure, required low maintenance.
