The Ro/Ro-Container Decontamination (Gimaex-Schmitz)
To achieve the best possible technical solution for the fulfillment of the required tasks, the Ro/Ro-Container
Decontamination had been separated into four sections:

· equipment compartment for storing the equipment
· shower section with 6 single showers and the possibility to attach tents for dressing and disrobing
· machine room for the operating technology
· foldable decontamination tray (externally in the rear) for performing the rough decontamination of materials.
  A decontamination or care of injured persons is also possible (on a stretcher).
