Remote Docking Port

Remote Docking Port

US Patent: 8,858,149

This patent discloses a floating dock port that allows ships to dock within the port structure and be loaded, unloaded, and refueled, while converting the energy generated from wave motion into a usable source of power.

Abstract: This invention is a floating dock port that allows ships to dock within the port structure and be loaded, unloaded, and refueled while converting the energy generated from wave motion into a usable source of power. The docking port isolated the vessels from waves and adverse sea currents, which allows for more effective cargo transfer. The docking port is extremely large and functions as a storage and distribution center for naval vessels. The loading and unloading of cargo and containers are accomplished by a container handling system that utilizes hoists, railed carriages, and cargo elevators to facilitate efficient loading and unloading of containers.
