ENKOPING, SWEDEN — BMH Marine, the Swedish-based manufacturer of ship unloading systems for the grain and feed industries, said it has reached an agreement with Hamworthy KSE AB, Gothenburg, Sweden, to acquire the rights to market and sell the Cargo Scooper self-unloading system.
The Cargo Scooper is a top reclaiming system with unloading capacities from 200 to 1,800 tonnes per hour. The machine can handle a variety of materials and is best used with smaller bulk carriers, the company said.
BMH Marine, which has supplied self-unloading, screw-type systems for dry bulk carriers since 1947, said the Cargo Scooper was "a natural complement to its product range."
The company also recently added a line of belt conveyor and airslide ship loaders
