Claudius Peters will deliver equipment for railcar unloading, a CC-type storage silo with a capacity of 3600 t of cement, and a pneumatic shiploader.
The silo will be equipped with a fluidisation system for the silo bottom, and have a diameter of 21.5 m and height of 27 m. Railcar loading and pneumatic shiploading will have a designed capacity of 200 tph.
Pneumatic conveying for the shiploader will be carried out by a size 350 Claudius Peters’ X-pump, which will carry the cement a distance of 148 m.
