rampa Ro-Ro móvil


Las últimas obras realizadas (ampliación del muelle Fernández Ladreda, montaje de la rampa Ro-Ro móvil, prolongación de las vías de trenes, etc ...), y aquellas programadas para el futuro (construcción de un muelle de 210 m. en la zona próxima al Acceso Norte, o un puerto exterior), convertirán las instalaciones ferrolanas en una de las mejores de su género en cuanto a servicios.

Rampa flotante

there's a very good glosary on ISO containers in:

There you will find the following definition:
Linkspan: Una rampa puente de la cual se apoya la rampa del barco, permite el acceso de los tractores RoRo, trailers y carretillas, evita los cambios de altura debido a las mareas.

As for the translation as "rampa flotante" you can check the following Spanish references:
