Bruks Siwertell shiploader for Martin Operating Partnership

The company will deliver a new shiploader capable of safely and reliably handling sulphur prill at high capacities.


According to Bruks Siwertell, the new rail-travelling loader is ideal for terminals where space is at a premium, as it is capable of filling every hold on a ship without requiring the vessel to move along its berth. It will be used for loading prilled sulphur into ship holds at a rated capacity of up to 1,200 tph.


Martin Operating Partnership, owned by Martin Midstream Partnership, handles various sulphur cargoes. The prilled sulphur, often used for agricultural applications, can be stored and loaded in the open air. However, minimising sulphur dust emissions was a key concern for the company. The fully enclosed shiploader’s conveyors and its dust suppression systems are designed to ensure environmental protection.


“At Bruks Siwertell, we handle sulphur under many conditions and in different climates,” said Ken Upchurch, vice president sales and marketing, Bruks Siwertell Americas.


“While we obviously build to order, the foundation of our robust, reliable designs is their ability to withstand demanding operating conditions and also to handle cargoes without damage and spillage.”


Upchurch added: “There can be no greater endorsement than repeat business. Martin Operating Partnership returns to Bruks Siwertell as a trusted and reliable partner, and we are delighted to renew our strong 15-year business relationship with them.


“This trusted position, our proven technological capabilities and our commitment to deliver the loader within the space of nine months were all factors that secured the contract.”


The new machine is scheduled for delivery in January 2020 and will support the company’s expanding sulphur services in the US Gulf Coast region.
