Floating Berth enters service at Marampa, Sierra Leone
Toward the end of 2010 we featured a radical new floating berth design for London Mining’s iron ore facility in Marampa, Sierra Leone.
QuayQuip’s specialist engineers are now installing and commissioning the berth. In the coming weeks, barges of 20,000 tonne displacement (16,000 tonne DWT) will arrive to begin the transfer of iron ore to ships moored in deeper water.
Both pictures show the slewing ore loader, and in the second picture you can also see the operator’s control station. We look forward to sharing more images as they become available.
