Examine the issues surrounding the safe handling and storage of bulk materials in ports and on the sea

Tuesday, January 14th, 2020

Join us for this short course to discuss real life issues and to determine best practice for future developments.

Subjects discussed include: Ship unloading technologies (Grabs vs CSUs, different CSU technologies) / Conveying technologies (pneumatic versus belt) / Storage and discharge technologies (silos, flat stores, stacking etc) / Loading, unloading control (weighing, controlling ship bending etc) / Rail and road outloading equipment and control / Explosion and fire risks and management (ATEX, fire control & management) / Mobile plant and safety / Developments in automation and autonomous vehicles / Dust control and environmental protection / Controlling cargo damage (particle degradation, spoilage, water damage etc) / Wear protection and maintenance / Cargo characterisation for handleability and other issues

Our successful and well received first course last year included a visit to The Wolfson Centre’s pilot plant. This visit generated such interest that this year we will be offering an optional Practical Workshop, to be held in our on-site industrial-scale pilot plant. Workshop attendees will test the behaviour of various bulk material cargoes under different situations, taking note of the differences and the implications to port operations.

 Who should attend? Stevedores, Operations supervisors, Port managers, Ships Masters, Port developers, Cargo superintendents, Equipment suppliers, Design consultants

Last year the course was attended by four delegates from Silopor. Duarte Bastos said the course was ‘a very useful approach to a number of questions about bulk cargoes’.
