Sea Transport ‘s logistics has a successful track record in dust-free transshipment vessels has focused on a total weather and environmental solution for the 21st century. Traditionally for bulk shipment, large storage sheds had to be built on prime waterfront land areas equal to the capacity of an export vessel. Then large expensive jetties would be built out to deep water, these jetties are also expensive to remove at the end of the mine’s life.
Most transhipment methods are generally restricted to sheltered in-shore or coastal waters, but dust and moisture limits are common problems. Additionally, most transhipment methods are restricted to a maximum wind speed of around 20 to 25 knots, are also restricted to wave heights 2 to 2.m and are limited by the size of their feeder vessels, the current wind and wave conditions.
Sea Transport Solutions have focused on small harbour solutions with shallow draught feeder vessels. Designed for shallow harbours, we used quad screw stern landing vessels (SLVs). In this video we illustrate the operation and capabilities of Sea Transport’s floating harbour transhiper – a compelling operational and environmental solution for the 21st century.
