Ship unloader for Bashundara - Bangladesh

For Bashundara's cement plant in Mongla we delivered a ship unloader

The pneumatic ship unloader is designed to handle fly ash and is built to cope with the hot and humid conditions in Bangladesh.

The ship unloader is stationary and located on a jetty at the riverfront. Space is limited on the jetty, therefore we designed a gantry frame for the ship unloader so it could be placed over an existing conveyor belt. The unloader has a 3-kettle system with 1 filter receiver and 2 transfer kettles, ensuring a near continuous discharge process. The ship unloader unloads typical Bangladeshi river ships and conveys the fly ash to a storage silo.

Ship unloader data:

  • Type: VASS/1.200/80/E
  • Ship size: 1.200 dwt
  • Convey length: 380 m max.
  • Design capacity: 80 mtph
