Magdragon II picks up the pace

Magdragon II picks up the pace

(Posted on 12/05/20)

The offshore iron ore transloading barge, Magdragon II, which has two E-Cranes, handled close to 1.5 million tons of magnetite iron ore in March 2020.

Magdragon II is a floating transfer station – operating close to Cape Preston in the Pilbara Region of West-Australia – with two 3000B series E-Cranes designed to unload magnetite from ocean going barges into hoppers, which feed a conveyor system and ship loader. The transfer station mainly loads Mini Cape vessels destined for China. Manufacturer of High Production Bulk Material and Scrap Cranes, E-Crane has congratulated all at Citic Pacific Mining with this record throughout, especially considering the challenging working conditions during this Covid-19 pandemic.

Designed specifically for barge and ship unloading, E-Crane is a proven and trusted solution in many bulk material handling industries.

Many dedicated systems for offloading coal, limestone and other bulk materials are costly, inflexible and require an expensive, hard to maintain infrastructure. The versatile, flexible E-Crane is just the opposite. E-Crane’s modular design and custom solutions make it the ideal equipment for any bulk handling application. E-Crane is purpose built for dedicated tasks including: Offloading Panamax/Handymax Sized Vessels; Barge Loading/Unloading; Ship Loading/Unloading; Feeding Hoppers; Stockpiling.

CITIC Pacific Mining is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong listed company CITIC Limited. Headquartered in Perth, the company was established to manage the construction and operation of Sino Iron, an integrated mining, processing and port operation supplying high-grade, low impurity iron ore product to the steel mills of Asia.
