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

Key features include a telescoping cascade spout for loading dry material, a telescoping freefall spout for loading wet 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. These features allow the Shiploader to receive and load two distinct material types – a dry dusty product and a wet sticky product.


A unique aspect of the supply and delivery was assembly off-site with shipment of the complete machine by barge to the owner’s facility.
