Cargo Handling Equipment

Overview

Two level luffing, grabbing cranes traverse the full length of No. 2 & 3 berths. Each crane is linked to a mobile hopper which is capable of discharging direct to road trucks or to a wharf conveyor by means of a shuttle conveyor within each hopper. The wharf conveyor runs along the length of No.2 berth and discharges either to a truck loading station or to the storage shed. A wharf receival hopper is located at the northern end of Lascelles No.2 berth, allowing self discharge vessels to unload directly to the storage shed or truck loading facility.
