Loading ships with chalk slurry
 
  • Customer's request:

- a project is set up using a ship to transport chalk slurry at a large distance;

- we have to load the ship using our tank trailers.

 
  • Problem:

- the chalk plant is not situated at a canal which makes it impossible for the ship to moor alongside the plant;

- the ship has to be loaded as soon as possible.

 
  • Consequences:
- the cost for a ship to lie by the quayside increases rapidly. Therefore the ship had to be loaded as soon as possible to give the project a chance to succeed.
 
  • Our solution:

- 4 tank trailers with maximum load are used;

- our trailers are given priority while loading at the plant;

- while unloading an extern mobile compressor is used to make it possible to unload 2 trailers in 20 minutes;

- a 24-hour service is guaranteed giving the customer the possibility to order on demand. We had to be flexible to find a solution to an unreliable arrival of the ship.
