Solent Stevedores makes equipment investment to improve discharge efficiency at Silvertown refinery

One of the key factors determining this purchase surrounded the lift restrictions which are governed by the two quay side cranes.

In working with partnership with CAT, the overall weight of the machine was reduced with the removal of some non essential parts, and this brought the overall weight within the required weight limits.

The Track Loader will be lowered into the vessel holds to assist in moving and consolidating the sugar cargo to support the crane grab at discharge.
