250m in length and capable of carrying 96,000mts of cargo are the two largest self-unloaders in the world. Utilising a system of conveyor belts running through tunnels beneath the cargo holds and a vertical lift belt feeding an 80 meter boom conveyor mounted on the deck, cargo can be discharged directly to shore, hopper or other vessels at rates of up to 6,000 mts per hour. This capability means that typically a full cargo of up to 96,000mts is typically discharged within 24 hours.
