Replacing an existing unit, the design capacity of the new shiploader is 1,200 tph and it will be delivered fully erect to the site.

The shiploader will run on rails, with a towed tripper to divert the product from a wharf gallery conveyor onto a transfer belt, and then to a loading boom belt.

Bedeschi said that the bespoke shiploader will be a luffing and slewing unit to facilitate all required loading operations.

The Italian firm added that the target is to install and commission the new machine without interfering with operation activities of the terminal.

“Design, engineering and construction for this machine are based on Bedeschi know-how, optimised and customised according to the client’s requirements,” stated Bedeschi. “Specific design, characteristics and performances are developed and integrated jointly with client technical team.”
