Project description:

European Bulk Services (EBS) operates a dry bulk terminal for intermediate storage of mineral bulk, agribulk and biomass products. The terminal has a total annual throughput of approx. 8 million tons, and a total land area of 30ha.

A transformation of a terminal into an ultra-modern woodpellet and agri bulk terminal was required. The project includes a new jetty and additional berth for Post Panamax Vessels, a 70.000m3 warehouse suitable for a large variety of agri bulk products including wood pellets, train and truck loading facilities and all required conveying and weighing systems.

The conveying systems include  two hoppers, one of which is rail mounted on the new jetty and is self-weighing. New belt and chain conveyors, transfer towers, overhead belt conveyor and tripper for loading and hoppers and belt conveyor for unloading the warehouse form part of the entire conveying system. In addition, conveying routes to a new truck loading station and the upgraded train loading station are included.

State-of-the-art automation, fire prevention and detection systems, hot spot prevention and detection systems are integrated in the project. All systems are in accordance with ATEX regulations.
