Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9946162A1] The present invention relates to a rotating mechanism (7) for a hatch cover placed over the hatchway opening of the cargo space (5) aboard a cargo ship, said mechanism serving to rotate at least one hatch cover block (3, 4) from a substantially horizontal position into a substantially vertical position and back, and said rotating mechanism (7) being pivotally mounted on a rigid structure of the ship and one end of said rotating mechanism being pivotally connected to an actuator means (8) of the rotating mechanism such as a hydraulic cylinder. The invention is implemented by placing the rotating mechanism (7) at the end of the hatchway coaming, in the transverse and longitudinal directions of the ship at least partially inside the hatchway coaming of the cargo space (5), whereby the pivot and actuator means (8) of the rotating mechanism (7) are placed outside the hatchway coaming so that the cover block lifting end of the rotating mechanism (7) remains in the hatchway under the hatch cover, either located in the cargo space (5) or situated in the interior space of the hatch cover structure.
