SABT upgrades

(Posted on 31/07/19)

South African Bulk Terminals is the largest grain handling organisation in the South Africa, shipping around 3,0 million tons per annum. Wheat, corn and rice are the main commodities and are handled at either of the two terminals in Durban. During the year many upgrades have taken place which have increased the corn loading capacity at the Island View site as well as the wheat importing capacity at the Maydon Wharf terminal.

These upgrades include the installation of a new road weighbridge, ship loading conveyor scales at both terminals, 4,8m floating fenders on one berth, debottlenecking conveyor routes and speeding up road truck handling systems. Plans for the immediate future include the implementation of new terminal operating software, the installation of new batch weighing equipment on the import route and improving our dust management systems. The combined capacity of the terminals has increased, however the most exciting improvements are in the reliability of the equipment which is constantly undergoing refurbishment. South African Bulk Terminals is looking forward to another great year with the expectation of breaking several new records.
