Tandem Loading

Tandem loading is accomplished when two 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: 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 two 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).
