FAM Ship Loader

When selecting and designing a shiploader, the quality and properties of the bulk material, local conditions, performance parameters and environmental requirements play a decisive role.

With these aspects in mind, FAM engineers determine the most effective and cost-efficient handling principle while minimizing operational and maintenance requirements. The loading system must fit in the port infrastructure and match current and future vessel sizes.

That’s why FAM has developed a variety of different loading systems.

  • stationary shiploaders
  • mobile shiploaders mounted on rails
  • quadrant radial-type shiploaders
  • shiploaders with gravity spiral chute for loading bagged goods
