Deployment of the Boaxt Event model

The truck can be a 2-axle vehicle with a 6-meter flatbed carrying a 20-foot Boaxt, or a tractor with a trailer, or even a semi-trailer, of 12 meters, carrying 2 Boaxts of 20 feet or 1 Boaxt of 40 feet.

The truck or tractor may be equipped with its own auxiliary crane. In this case, it will have to lower its jacks before the crane can be deployed. Otherwise, a mobile crane will have to be positioned on the site.
Setting up trestles

The 4 trestles are set up to receive the Boaxt at a precise position, defined according to the site configuration and in accordance with available space.
Crane deployment

The crane, auxiliary or mobile, will place its hook in line with the Boaxt in order to proceed with its handling.
Installation of slings

The slings can be easily positioned using the standard handling blocks located at the four upper corners of the Boaxt.
Moving the container to the trestles

Once slung, the Boaxt can be guided by the operators to be positioned on the 4 trestles. The crane, if it is well positioned, can remain in position and on stand-by.

Operators, who will have been purposely trained, will then be able to safely and swiftly proceed to the opening of the doors nd to the manual deployment of the floats using various handling tools, chain hoists and locking accessories.

The front and rear doors are opened to the horizontal position. The floats are tilted until the hinges connecting the central floats and the extensions are vertical.

The 4 end floats are unfolded and secured to the central float.

The tilting of the unfolded floats continues until they come to rest on the swivel brackets fixed to the trestles. The central floats are locked in their final position.

The crane can then resume its handling and lay the Boaxt in the water. The above operations can be repeated to place other Boaxts afloat, which will then be moored to each other, and to the quay or to the bank.
Setting up the stanchions

Once the Boaxts are secured to each other and moored to the quay, the perimeter of the deployed surface will be protected with stanchions and lifelines, which will protect people from falling into the water.

Then, access footbridges and all safety equipment required by regulations will be installed.
Setting up

The Boaxts can then receive all accessories, furniture, decoration, equipment and devices necessary for their use, would it be a fair, a workshop, purposes of bridging, fight against natural disasters, such as floods... but also for the configuration of dwelling - temporary or permanent - by receiving a R+1 of containers, the whole thus constituted being able to be transformed into dispensary, office, housing...
Open to public

Public reception can be done as soon as the whole device is configured and that all the means in conformity with the regulation have been deployed, including of course accesses for mobility challenged people, not forgetting any system which could be required on a case-by-case basis.
