COST STUDY ON MODERN DEEP SEA BULK MATERIALS UNLOADING AND HANDLING CENTRE

STUDIE DER KOSTEN ELNES MODERNEN TIEFWASSER-LOESCHPLATZES FUER DEN SCHUETTGUTUMSCHLAG

This cost study is based on a twin-tube tunnel connecting the ship unloading station with the quay and accommodating a two-rail suspension track system. The terminal which will have three berth mooring sites, also has ship unloaders, stackers and reclaiming equipment in a storage yard on the quay. Operation of 100,000 dwt ships instead of the 65,000 dwt bulk carriers allowed in European ports, would make such a terminal a paying proposition for Western Europe if a handling volume of 9 million tons/yr in the Venezuela service or of 3.5 million tons in bulk materials service from West Australia could be realized.
