MAGDRAGON II achieves 1.5 Mt of Magnetite in March

MAGDRAGON II (pictured) is operated by CITIC Pacific Mining close to Cape Preston in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. The vessel is equipped with two 3000B series E-Cranes designed to unload magnetite from oceangoing barges.


The E-Cranes feed the magnetite into hoppers, which feed a conveyor system and shiploader. The transfer station mainly loads Mini Cape vessels destined for China.


Commenting on the achievement, E-Crane stated: “E-Crane would like to congratulate all at CITIC Pacific Mining with this record throughout, especially considering the challenging working conditions during this Covid-19 pandemic.”


The image below shows a screen capture from the E-CARE system (E-Crane Analysis & Reporting) data for one of the E-Cranes on board Magdragon II for March 2020.
