The boom has a maximum reach of 35m from the center of rotation, supports a spout load of 22,000 kilos and is rated for seismic zone 4. The shiploader boom shuttles in and out 23m and rotates 330 degrees. VWL loads up to Panamax Class ships at this facility.

The shiploader features air supported belt conveyors, a Cleveland Cascade loading spout and a central dust collection system.
