IBAU HAMBURG delivers road-mobile ship unloader to Sanghi Industries, India
Published: 12 September 2012


IBAU HAMBURG has recently delivered a road-mobile ship unloader, ordered by Sanghi Industries Ltd. for their Mumbai Cement Terminal.

The road-mobile ship unloaders for mini bulk tankers are usually mounted on trailers (for road transport) as the ship unloader has to serve several terminals or because it is not possible to have stationary units in the harbour. Road-mobile, trailer-mounted ship unloaders have a self-supporting structure, are weighing approximately 30t and do have a high degree of manoeuvrability.

Starting from the transport position it is required that a unit can be ready for operation in less than 30 minutes. During operation, the individual screws can be tilted or rotated within fixed angles, so that all areas of the ship’s hold can be reached from a given position. The loading screw can either load the material directly into trucks or transfer it to a downstream mechanical or pneumatic transport unit. For direct truck loading, the loading screw is equipped with a loading chute and an integrated filter unit.

The ship unloader integrates the latest modular design, which allows for customised functions and features and specifically engineered downstream cement transport systems to the final storage.
