Bedeschi has been awarded a contract for the supply of cargo handling equipment for a new transshipper being implemented by a leading operator in Middle East. The project entails discharging of iron ore pellets from ocean going vessels (OGVs) upto cape sizes, into barges at a designated offshore anchorage. The operator has been commissioned to provide offshore transhipment and transportation service for a major steel mill, which imports iron ore pellets as raw material for its plant. The cargo from the OGVs will be discharged in a double banking by using a panamax size transhipper, with four side mounted Liebherr cranes, in combination of a cargo handling equipment, comprising of two double hoppers, four variable speed drive feeder belts, conveyors and a barge loader of 3000 tph capacity, discharging into self discharging barges, moored alongside. The barges will be employed to transport the iron ore pellets to the jetty and self discharge into shore receiving hoppers.

The contract to Bedeschi was awarded at the culmination of a very stringent selection process through an international competitive bidding.
