French term or phrase: pont roulant
Boat building. Shipyard specialising in composite construction. Above one of the yard’s ovens, is a mobile overhead structure. The term I am looking for describes this structure (pont roulant).

« Le nouveau chantier est équippé de deux étuves : une grande (équippée d’un pont roulant) et une petite. »

Any ideas ?
