Road mobile ship unloader in Russia

The road-mobile ship unloader with an unloading capacity of 225 ton per hour, was primarily chosen because of its compact structure which allows it to be transported by road between ports throughout Russia and Europe, with hardly any disassembly work. Hook-up and temporary dismantling of the suction arm (for road transport) can be performed by the unit itself, without the need for any assistance in the various ports. All disassembled arm sections can be stored on the trailer during transport.

Changuinola Civil Works JV has established a floating cement terminal in the Changuinola River, Panama, specifically designed to ensure a constant supply of cement and fly ash for the construction of a new dam. Van Aalst Bulk Handling was awarded the contract for the terminal’s ship unloader.
