shiploader was completed in 1995 for CII Carbon in New
Orleans, LA, U.S.A. It features three shiploading towers mounted
on the ships breasting dolphins. It loads 400mt per hour of
calcined petroleum coke (800 kg per cubic meter/50 lbs per cubic
ft) onto Handymax ships. A few Panamax ships have been loaded
at this dock.
three shiploaders give complete hatch coverage, which allows
the entire ship to load, without requiring the ship to move.
three shiploaders have a maximum boom reach of 27m, shuttle
in and out 17m and rotate 350 degrees. The system is rated to
withstand hurricane force winds.
dust collectors are positioned at each product transfer point
and a commercial "dust free" loading spout is used.
