Scope

EMS-Tech Inc. provided engineering, design, supply, installation and commissioning for all components of this multi-function Shiploader.

The key features include a telescoping freefall spout for loading material; dust collection at all transfer points; an extendable shuttle structure supported inside a four meter deep plate girder boom; and redundant drive systems for shuttle, luff, slew, and traverse motions.

Result

An unique aspect of the supply and delivery was assembly off-site with shipment of the complete machine by barge to the owner’s facility minimizing disruption and terminal down time.
