Limestone discharge

Melbourne, Australia

Case study

  • A CSL 46,700 DWT Handymax bulk carrier equipped with four cranes of 30 MT SWL with four 12m3 remote controlled grabs, discharges a cargo of limestone into a hopper.
  • The crane operator lowers a grab into the hold to grasp a load of limestone, lifts it out, and positions the grab above the hopper into which the cargo is released.
