Claudius Peters, a leading materials handling company, has commissioned BEGA, Lithuania’s first private stevedoring company based in the Port of Klaipeda, Lithuania, with a turnkey silo and discharge equipment solution.
The Claudius Peters supply comprised of a rail car unloading system and a storage silo with pneumatic conveying for ship loading to unload three railcars simultaneously up to a capacity of 200 tph. The storage silo is a Claudius Peters 3300T Conventional Cone cement storage silo at 27 m high and 12.5 m in diameter equipped with a silo bottom fluidisation system. A compact silo design means that this type of silo bottom needs less fluidisation equipment and as a result less energy compared to other conventional silos.
“We were delighted to partner with BEGA, who are a forward thinking company with an impressive record of success, which adds further strength to our position in the Baltic region," said Frank Siebert, Sales Director of Claudius Peters. "Our solution based approach suited our customer's needs precisely and we look forward to a long and continued working relationship”.
The pneumatic conveying system utilises a size 350 Claudius Peters X-pump and enables a total conveying distance of 205 m. Originally the project was based on a conveying distance of 148 m. During the project phase the customer decided to use two different quays with a conveying distance of 148 m and 205 m. Together Bega and Claudius Peters were able to fulfil this special requirement.
