ESSEX Cement terminal boosts Van Aalst Ship Unloader with new Heila Manipulator Arm

With this new arm, Essex secures their future and reduces the risk of failures. Thanks to a newly introduced electrical safety program, the Heila manipulator arm itself prevents any errors from the operator or ship. This makes the entire machine more efficient and safer. At the same time, the lifting moment of the arm has been increased, making it even more resistant to the forces created to move the rotating nozzle through the cement. With the extra functionalities and updated remote control, it becomes even easier for the operator to operate the arm, which results in a safer working environment, better performances and longer life span.

Titan America serves the New York and New Jersey market from the Essex Cement terminal, Essex Cement has the capacity to store 62,000 tons in four main cement silos.
