SAMSON Materials Handling have taken an order for a Narrow Quay Shiploader System with two Mobile Material Feeders and two Mobile Link Conveyors for the Port of Darica Kocaeli/Turkey. This project is based on the Shiploader discharging to vessels typically up to 64 000 DWT, with a maximum beam of 32.2 m and a freeboard from quay height of 11.0 m. The Shiploader includes an enlarged reception hopper to receive the material simultaneously direct from the two Link Conveyors which are fitted with a centralising, dust sealing, discharge chute. Under standard conditions, the SAMSON Shiploader will achieve a peak loading rate of 1000 t/h.

The two Link Conveyors will include small reception hoppers designed to receive direct from the centralising, dust sealing transfer chutes of two SAMSON Mobile Material Feeders. The two Samson® Mobile Material Feeders are mounted on wheels. Both Feeders have flared loading entry sections, 4.5 m wide, to increase the effective volume of the Material Feeders entry and to reduce loading vehicle alignment time. The two Material Feeders are equipped with integral truck ramps to receive the material from tipping trucks.
