TRANSHIPMENT VESSELS

Transport and logistics can significantly increase the cost of exporting bulk ore materials if transport infrastructure and/or a deepwater port isn’t located close to the mine site.

Mining companies are often faced with transporting ore long distances via road or rail to a deepwater port. Alternatively a large expensive jetty may be built at a port closer to the mine to allow loading of large export ships.

Transhipment allows smaller vessels with shallow draft to transfer ore from a small harbour close to the mine site to an ocean going export vessel stationed offshore.

SEATRANSPORT offers a range of transhipment systems, which provide mineral exporters with low cost, low risk and environmentally responsible logistics solutions.

Unbeatable Transhipping

Whether you’re a Junior Miner startup or a Major Miner expanding – Transhipment systems are more cost effective than Conventional export thinking of Large Ports and Jetties.

Why Transhipping?

Reduces Sovereign risk, time and cost and headache of the permitting minefield.
Small footprint shore infrastructure.
Small shallow harbour eliminates the need for dredging, or major jetty structure – Quick environmental approvals and low capex.

Reduces CAPEX and OPEX

Lower manning and power requirements than conventional systems.
Can handle rougher seas, eliminates demurrage and feeder damage.
Reduced port charges – berthage, wharfage, tugs, line boats etc.
Faster transfer rates than conventional transhipper
Most Transhipment methods are generally restricted to sheltered inshore coastal waters, but dust and Transportable Moisture Limits (TML) are common problems.

Restricted to Max wave heights 2-2.5m and Max wind speeds of 20-25kts

SEATRANSPORT provides tailored transhipment solutions to environmental restrictions, weather constraints and lower operational costs.
