Fluctuations in commodity prices due to supply variations and softening economic fundamentals raises the importance of increasing transfer rates from vessels, as faster turnaround times require higher output volumes and the opportunity for commodity sellers to lower their operating costs. The longer you have a vessel unloading the less volume of material being sold.
Port and Terminal operations are optimized with mechanical Mobile Marine Leg Unloaders. The CDM Mobile Marine Leg Unloaders use the proven En-Masse conveying technology and exclusive Drop-Forged Chain design providing 24/7 reliable service coupled with the ability to move up to 700 TPH for a single unit. The En-Masse principal used in our unloaders is the key to reliable, fast material unloading. The En-Masse conveying system virtually eliminates horizontal or lateral misalignment; which is inherent in bucket style unloaders. This means faster material movement and reduced operating costs.
Mobile ship unloaders offer many benefits over stationary units:
