Potash & Sulphur Terminal
Shiploader Type: Quadrant
Commodity: Potash, Sulphur
Terminal added additional material handling capabilities. Thus the shiploader boom needed to be replaced. With the indurad remote control system to control the shiploader from an office, the operator cabin on the boom was removed. This reduced weight allows more bulk on the boom, resulting in higher machine throughput. Also, the loading process has become partially automatic.
Collision Avoidance (boom, chute), Remote Control, partial automation (e.g. changing hatches, return to parking position, change chutes, automatic shipscan and identification of hatches, stockpile surface scanning in hatch in real time e.g. for trimming)
