The 11 th International Conference & Exhibition

For The Roll-on/Roll-off Marine Transportation Industry,


RoRo 92 - The international marine industry's leading conference and exhibition exclusively focused on

Roll-on/Roll-off transportation.

From May 20 to 22, the Svenska

Massan Conference Center and Sara

Gothia Hotel in Gothenburg, Swe- den, will be hosting RoRo 92, the 11th biennial international conference and exhibition on Roll-on/Roll-off trans- portation concepts. Begun in 1976, the international conference was last held in Gothenburg in 1988 and in

Trieste, Italy in 1990.

The main focus of RoRo 92 will be on future developments in ship re- quirements, ship types and designs, port systems, environmental con- cerns, new European RoRo waterways, advances in terminal and linkspan designs, new Safety

Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) regulations, and the latest in swapbody and cas- sette handling.

For over 15 years the exhibition has been firmly established as the leading international event for those involved in the Roll-on/Roll-off in- dustry and an excellent business environment in which to promote their capabilities. The conference will bring together the views and exhibits of some of the leading exec- utives from the various sectors of

RoRo handling, shipping lines, ports, marine machinery and cargo equip- ment manufacturers. Some of the products and services that will be on display include: RoRo tractors and forklifts; skid safety items; cargo lashing gear; marine navigation equipment; RoRo ship and ferry designs; port layouts; marine ma- chinery; container handling equip- ment and cranes; and ship management services. Participants from 40 countries are expected to attend RoRo 92.

The three-day program compris- es 10 sessions under the following headings:

Session 1 - MARKETS & NEEDS

Session 2 - FAST RORO,


Session 3 - PORT FUTURES


Session 5 - SHIP DESIGN/


Session 6 - COASTAL & INLAND


Session 7 - LASHING &


Session 8 - TERMINAL


Session 9 - SHIP


Session 10 -HANDLING &


The two opening sessions both address several key issues for the future of the business. The feasibil- ity of several fast sea transport projects between Scandinavia and the European continent will be ex- amined in the Fast RoRo Session, as well as the results of a major study carried out by Finland's Kvaerner


Pollution concerns and their pos- sible solutions will be discussed during the Coastal, Inland RoRo and

Ship Design & Propulsion sessions.

One of the keynote speakers of the conference will be the U.S. Na- vy's commander of Military Sealift

Command, Vice Adm. F. R. Dono- van. Based on the experience gained by coalition forces during the Gulf

War, Admiral Donovan will dis- cuss the critical contribution made by RoRo merchant vessels to the allied supply effort and the impor- tance of maintaining a sufficient number of modern RoRo vessels.

A major highlight of RoRo 92 will be the gala dinner and reception host- ed by Stena Rederi AB and the

Swedish Shipowners Association on board the STENA DANICA. The lux- ury ferry will cruise through the beautiful Gothenburg Archipelago to

Frederikshavn, Denmark, and back.
