Bedeschi transshipping system for the HUBCO project in Pakistan

Published on February 5, 2018

Bedeschi was awarded the supply of No 2 barge loader for the handling of coal. The whole system will be installed on a Panamax ship, able to self-store as a warehouse in order to reduce the unloading operations during the barges’ downtime. A new 2 660MW coal-fired power plant (HPP) is to be built, and will be located slightly to the north of the estuary of the Hab River (Baluchistan province, Pakistan). This barging system will be used to handle the required approximately 3.8mt (million tonnes) per annum of coal. Transshipment operations are carried
out by dedicated self-propelled, selfloading/- unloading barges (SLUB), collecting the cargo from gearless OGV (oceangoing vessel) holds and delivering it to shore.
The picture shows an example of a coal transshipment hub.
