Ram has delivered three patented Revolver bulk handling spreaders to DP World Adelaide for handling containerised iron ore shipments from Australian mining company IMX.

The newly launched units will load about 70,000 tonnes of ore onto vessels for each voyage and have up to a 1,700 tonne per hour capacity. It allows containers filled with iron ore to be lifted and tipped into the hold of a vessel. The containers are handled in the port, by rail and at the mine with standard container handling equipment, such as straddle carriers and reach stackers.

The project has allowed IMX to export its product quickly with low capital investment while meeting all environmental requirements, said Ram. "Whether the Ram Revolver is fitted to a ship's crane, quay crane, mobile harbour crane or even a reach stacker it has the potential to meet customers' requirements in many different projects," said a company spokesman.
