Cargotec has signed a contract with the Lithuanian stevedoring company Bega to supply electro-mechanical cargo handling equipment for a grain and animal feedstuffs export/import terminal at the port of Klaipéda in Lithuania. Fertiliser and other bulk cargo may also be handled in the future.
“The Cargotec belt conveyor system employed in this project features low power consumption and handles material ‘gently’, resulting in the minimum of material breakage,” said Arne Nyström, sales manager for bulk terminals at Cargotec. “It is also easy to keep clean, so there is no admixture when changing between different cargoes.”
The contract calls for a ship loader, belt conveyors, slide gates and diverter gates, a variety of scales, rail wagon/truck loading systems, dust filters, electrical switchgear, power and control cables with installation material and a process control system including human/machine interface and supervisory control and data acquisition system. Cargotec is also responsible for all the associated detailed design work.
