free-fall ramp
Explanation:
Would have to see the thing to be certain, but slisketårn seems to be a superstructure erected to hold the ramps from which free-fall life boats are launched. The drop itself is called sliskestup. Sliske is a 'bar or beam used as foundation for something that should glide away'.
