Côte d'Ivoire: Samson Materials Eco Hopper order

Côte d'Ivoire: Samson Materials Eco Hopper order
17 November 2016

Samson Materials Handling Ltd UK (a member of the Aumund Group) has received an order for its Eco Hopper from SEA-Invest for operation in Côte d'Ivoire.

This Eco Hopper is designed to receive dry bulk materials such as cement clinker, limestone, gypsum and slag from a mobile harbour crane. The Eco Hopper will discharge onto a high-level quayside conveyor at a rate of 1200tph or via a dedicated outlet direct to trucks at 700tph.

SEA-Invest chose the Samson Eco Hopper for its flexibility to handle a variety of different materials. The equipment can also be configured at a later stage to suit evolving port operations. Port operators need to make sure that logistics costs are compatible with the market price of the materials being transported and that their equipment can respond to changes in market conditions. 

Sébastien Ghesquiere, director of SEA-Tech, the SEA-Invest Engineering subsidiary, confirms that "in a competitive market we need to ensure our service offering is reliable and value for money. Environmental responsibility is something that we take seriously at SEA-Invest. We endeavour to provide efficient, cost effective and environmentally appropriate service and we look forward to developing our port facilities with Samson."
