Main trends in the mobile port bulk materials handling equipment market

Over the past 15 years, the development of seaports in Russia has been significantly higher than the average activity of the country's economy as a whole. New ports and terminals were actively built, existing ones were actively expanding the range of cargo handled, productivity/cargo turnover, and re-equipped with new, high-tech facilities in order to reduce the unit cost of transshipment. Ports were built in places with a more favorable climate, allowing cargo to be handled more days a year, having greater depths and allowing larger vessels to be handled (up to 200,000 DWT), and dredging was carried out at existing berths. Specialized terminals were actively replacing universal ones from the market. The tightening of environmental requirements for stevedores has had a significant impact, more and more warehouses under construction are becoming closed, and aspiration and dust suppression systems are being actively implemented. Due to the fact that at the beginning of the period of changes, the fleet of transshipment machines in the country significantly lagged behind the world level, Russia took 2 steps forward at once, purchasing the most modern equipment. Moreover, the tasks of re-equipment were solved both by purchasing imported equipment and creating new models using the best international experience of the flagships of Russian engineering.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the volume of transshipment through seaports of Russia along all the seaways: the Arctic, Baltic, black sea and Far East.
Existing ports began to grow and develop, and new mega-projects were implemented, equipped with the latest and specialized technic and technology. And for each specialized marine terminal, one of the key positions is a ship loading machine.

Bulk carriers are designed to transport various bulk cargo, such as ore, coal, fertilizers, building materials or grain, as well as any cargo that can simply be filled into the holds without packaging, or in bulk. There are highly specialized vessels - ore carriers, cement carriers, coal carriers, grain carriers, timber carriers and universal ones that carry any bulk cargo
