Sea Transport Solutions (STS) had been engaged to provide the whole feasibility study including scheduling, manning and procedure systems for both the McArthur River Mine (Bing Bong, NT) and Century Zinc Mine (Karumba, QLD) transhipment operations. STS designed the vessels to suit the unique operations and in doing so, created the world’s first Bucketwheel Transhippers.
The vessel concepts and detailed construction designs, including the port geometry and berth layouts of each operation had been developed by STS. Each were set up to allow easy and faster maneuvering, as well as easy maintenance access onto the vessels. Sea Transport Solutions supplied the original crewing & management for the operations.
“The port is taken to the product, instead of the product being taken to the port.”
