398272-2012: UK-Hull: Lifting and handling equipment

Design, manufacture and delivery of a mobile harbour hopper capable of handling 500 tonnes of dry bulk materials into road going vehicles per hour. The hopper shall be required to accommodate grabs upto 18 m³ in size and be capable of being manoeuvred around the quay with the aid of existing operational equipment. The hopper shall incorporate robust dust extraction and dust suppression systems such that there shall be no fugutive dust emitted into the environment whilst discharging a wide range of bulk materials including pellatised wood biomass. Due to the anticipated cargoe types the hopper shall be ATEX rated and be required to operate under its own power. The hopper shall be designed to limit the imposed loads during manoeuvering and operational activites due to quay loading restrictions on the existing quays and therefore the hopper will require bespoke designs in relation to the under carriage / wheel arrangements and pad sizes / location in order to limit the loads being transferred onto the suspended quays around the port estate.
