This single tower shiploader and the feed belt conveyors were completed in 1998 for Great Lakes Carbon in Port Arthur, Texas, U.S.A. It loads 650mt per hour of Calcined petroleum coke (800 kg per cubic meter/50 lbs per cubic ft), onto Handymax ships.

It is pile supported on pilings driven through holes cut in the existing dock. The shiploader has a maximum reach of 27 meters and shuttles in and out 17m and rotates 270 degrees. This shiploader is rated to withstand hurricane force winds.

Self-contained dust collectors are positioned at each product transfer point and a commercial "dust free" loading spout is used.
