Tandem Loading

Tandem loading is accomplished when two (2) barges are loaded simultaneously. In order to do this safely, each barge's HL/OF Alarm system must be tied into the terminal shut down or shut down notification alarm. We provide different solutions for owners/operators to consider.

Portable Tandem Load box: Allows two barge alarm systems to be tied into terminal via connections in this box.

Permanent Tandem Load Switch (TLS): Install a fixed tandem load switch that can be used to put the barge alarm system in tandem load conditions.

Cable Storage Box w/cable: API-to-API cable storage box allows cable to connect the barges “at the ready” for tandem loading.

API to API Tandem Cable storage Box

The API to API Tandem Cable storage box is utilized to store the umbilical cable used to tie (2) barges' H/OF Alarm system in tandem. It connects inboard barge outboard API Shore connects to outboard barge inboard API Shore Connect. It must be used with the Bergan Tandem Load Switch (TLS).
