Samson Stormajor renewed at Dundee

Following 28 years of service at the Port of Dundee, UK, Samson Materials Handling has given a new lease of life to a Stormajor mobile stockpiling machine.

The Stormajor was originally installed in 1988 at the port for stockpiling oil rape seed, barley, wheat and malt. Port operator Forth Ports and Samson decided that bringing the Stormajor up to the latest specifications would both improve efficiency and allow Forth Ports to future-proof their equipment whilst respecting resources by renewing existing equipment.

After being stripped down, refitted with the latest component parts, diesel engine and drives, the unit was repainted and then returned to site for commissioning in June 2016 in time for the next harvest.

David Webster, port manager at Dundee, said: “At the Port of Dundee, we are recognised as the main agricultural hub in the east coast of Scotland, not only handling tonnages over the quay side, but drying a significant volume of malting barley each year resulting in the Port of Dundee handling in excess of 250,000t each year.

“The Stormajor has served us well for 28 years and now that the machine has been fully refurbished and has a new lease of life, we will enjoy many more years’ service at the port.”

Krissy Lee, after-sales manager for Samson, said: “The Dundee Forth Ports Stormajor refurbishment was a great project, executed on time and to budget and to everyone’s satisfaction.

“This really is a testament to the expertise of the engineering teams at Forth Ports and Samson and how, by enjoying open communication, we can understand our client’s situation and provide an actionable solution to their material handling needs.”
