Member News – Fairport solution diverts contaminated coal and pays for itself within 18 months

Staff at Fairport Engineering are celebrating following the successful implementation of a project to help ABP improve their coal offloading reliability at their Humber International Terminal in Immingham.

With each stoppage of a Panamax dry bulk carrier to remove metal contaminant taking several hours of delay, ABP wanted to install an automated solution to increase productivity using a continuous offloading process.

Fairport devised a deceptively simple solution, and after being given the go-ahead by ABP, took just four weeks to design and procure, and just one week commission. What’s more, the in-line plough is expected to pay for itself within 18 months and significantly reduce portside demurrage risk.
