Bedeschi has shipped the first of two gantry-mounted ship loaders, fully assembled, from La Spezia in Italy, to the new mineral bulk export terminal to be operated by Iberpotash at Álvarez de la Campa wharf in the Port of Barcelona
The scope of supply includes engineering, manufacturing, delivery, erection, installation, testing and commissioning.
The second shiploader will be shipped in the same way from La Spezia shortly.
The shiploaders will be used to handle muriate of potash (potassium of chloride), rock salt and food grade salt. They can work vessels up to 70,000dwt and nominal loading (belt conveyor) capacity is 1,500 tph.
The terminal at Álvarez de la Campa is much bigger than the one used by Iberpotash up to now in Barcelona, at the Contradic Nord wharf.
