EMS-Tech Inc. successfully delivers self-unloading system for Oldendorff Carriers' new 94,000 dwt Post-Panamax bulk carrier.
The M/V Alfred Oldendorff, the latest addition to the Oldendorff fleet, was successfully delivered to her Owners by New Yangzijiang Shipyard on March 16, 2015. The M/V Alfred Oldendorff arrived in Abu Dhabi, UAE on April 7, 2015, where she teamed up with the E. Oldendorff, a smaller version of the new ship, to tranship iron ore for use in steel mills in UAE and other Middle East countries.
The new Oldendorff vessel is an eco-type 94,000 dwt Post-Panamax self-unloading bulk carrier that features an innovative EMS-Tech self-unloading system. The EMS-Tech self-unloading system is rated for discharge of iron ore at 3,500 MTPH, and features 5 stationary receiving hoppers with EMS-Tech patented Feeder Gates, a deck mounted conveyor system, and 2 specialized boom conveyors.
The M/V Alfred Oldendorff will be joined by her sister vessel the M/V Antonie Oldendorff later this month. Both newbuilds will be engaged in long term transshipment contracts with various clients in the Middle East.
