    Innovative ship loading conveyor at Vostochny Port

    Russia’s largest stevedoring company Vostochny Port JSC, which is a part of Port Management Company LLC, says it has taken the delivery and started assembling of an innovative ship loading conveyor (SLC).

    SLC intended for conveying of coal into the holds of bulk carriers was developed by Mitsui Miike (Japan) together with the specialists of Vostochny Port JSC under an agreement for delivery of equipment signed with the Japanese company Marubeni Corporation under the Port’s programme on modernization and renovation of its facilities.

    The equipment was delivered by Dutch company Big Lift specializing in transportation of heavy cargo by sea transport. The new SLC will replace one of the four conveyors at the dedicated coal terminal of Vostochny Port JSC.

    643-tonne SLC was delivered by the Happy Star ship equipped with two cranes with aggregate capacity of 1,800 tonnes. It took one hour to unload the cargo at berth No 49 of Vostochny Port JSC.
