15000 dwt cement tanker, in operation since 1993

For seaborne transport high loading and unloading rates up to 1200 t/h, automatic operation and advanced control are required, besides 100% reliability.
The MV Goliath of Australian Cement is an excellent benchmark for advanced design and economical operation. The 15000 dwt cement tanker, built in 1993, is transporting over 1.1 million tonnes of cement per year from the Railton Plant, resp. Devonport Harbour in Tasmania to Port Melbourne, Glebe Island (Sydney) and Newcastle in Australia.
What makes the difference to other large cement tankers is the loading and unloading concept. Loading and unloading procedures of the MV Goliath are very simple and only one pneumatic conveying system is used to cover even more than 500 m distances from the ship to the shore terminals.
The unloading terminals have the same design than conventional cement distributions terminals with truck loading lines. No own shipunloading or transport equipment is required and therefore the installations are highly independent and cost effective.
