Sea-Invest places order for a Samson Eco Hopper

Sea-Invest, one of the world’s largest terminal operators, with expertise spanning a multitude of port-related activ­ities in 25 ports over two continents, have placed an order for an Eco Hopper from Samson Materials Handling Ltd., UK, destined for operation in the Ivory Coast.

This Eco Hopper is designed to receive dry bulk materials such as cement clinker, limestone, gypsum and slag from a mobile harbour crane. The Eco Hopper will discharge onto a high-level quayside conveyor at a rate of 1200 t/h or via a dedicated outlet direct to trucks at 700 t/h.

Samson Eco Hoppers provide an environmentally respectful import solution for dry bulk materials. With a variety of dust reduction and containment measures operators will reduce material wastage and limit fugitive dust. Robustly designed to withstand cross winds and grab impact damage, the Eco Hopper is reliable in busy ports and terminals.

Sea-Invest chose the Samson Eco Hopper for its flexibility. In addition to being able to handle a variety of different materials, the equipment can be configured at a later stage to suit evolving port operations. Port operators need to make sure that logistics costs are compatible with the market price of the materials being transported and that their equipment can respond to changes in market conditions. Sébastien Ghesquiere, Director of Sea-Tech, the Sea-Invest Engineering subsidiary, confirms that “in a competitive market we need to ensure our service offering is reliable and value for money. Environmental responsibility is something that we take seriously at Sea-Invest. We endeavour to provide efficient, cost-effective and environmentally appropriate service and we look forward to developing our port facilities with Samson”.
