Bulk Loaders

 

Overview

 

 

The Port of Fujairah Bulk Loader became fully operational in November 2002 coinciding with the completion of an additional 600 meters of main quay dredged to 15 meters. The Second Bulk Loader became fully operational in January 2013. The planning, building and commissioning of the Bulk Loaders were based on the need to meet a sustained and growing demand for quality aggregate exports from the Emirate building projects in the Inner Gulf and beyond. Previously shipments were handled by vessels using their own gear and performing a load and grab operation from the quay.

 

The current Bulk Loaders operation allows particular advantages:

  • The capability of loading of Shiploader #01 is 2,200 T.P.H. and Shiploader #02 is 4,400 T.P.H. (Max).
  • Uniform productivity.
  • An environmentally friendly loading solution.
  • The accommodation of large vessels.
  • Flexibility in stockpile storage arrangements.
  • Can accommodate gearless vessels.
