Vigan Engineering S.A.
specializes in dry bulk equipment for ports, grain terminals and silos. Vigan offers a world of choices in ship and barge loaders and unloaders to suit the varying conditions of fluvial, sea ports and bulk handling facilities. The company's pneumatic unloaders for ships, barges, trucks and wagons are available in capacities from 60 to 650 tph per pipe and 1,300 tph with two pipes.
Vigan works with clients through engineering, design, manufacturing, erection, start-up, on-site and factory personnel training with continued after-sales service and financing. Up-to-date references show Vigan installations in operation on five continents. First-class construction with the most technologically advanced processes available is Vigan's guarantee.
Satisfied customers are operating Vigan equipment in ports and silos on a regular basis to load or unload a wide range of products, including fertilizers, urea and phosphates, grain and agricultural products, animal foodstuffs and chemical products.
The European standard of manufacturing is used in Vigan's workshops in Nivelles, Belgium, and in the erection and commissioning carried out by Vigan personnel. Because the company stresses great care and attention to ecological and environmental integrity and safety, Vigan ship loaders and unloaders are referred to as "green."
Vigan's newest ship unloader, the Super 2000, was recently unveiled and is already in use at a facility in Egypt.
Vigan's success is due to a combination of skilled ship loader and unloader engineering, high-quality port equipment and extensive field service. Competitive prices and fast, efficient customer support also contribute to Vigan's solid reputation worldwide.
Vigan Engineering was recognized for excellence in exporting and services in July 1998 by a new export award presented at the Lisbon International World Fair.
