Port has one Figee & one TRF Kangaroo type cranes. Presently out of 02 only 01 shore crane is not under operation due to technical reason.
EXPORT: Copper Slag. / IMPORT: Copper Conc. / Rock Phosphate / Coal.
All dry cargo is stored in open area and no warehouse facilities are available in terminal.
All cargo are loaded / discharged at DHIL by shore crane / grab.
Discharge rate - coal – 8000 MT/day; Copper Concentrate 7000 MT/day Rock Phosphate 7500 MT/day; Ammonia – 5000 MT/day.
Loading rate – Sulphuric Acid – 12000 to 14000 MT/day; Copper Slag – 7000 MT/day; Copper Cathode – 2500 MT/day.
Jetty having 01 figee & 01 TRF Kangaroo Ship unloader fitted with grabs. Presently only 01 shore is under operation out of 02 due to technical reason. The outreach of crane from centre of belt conveyor is 35.00 & 38 meters respectively. Unloader feeds a belt conveyor running parallel to jetty and is transferred to 450 Milli Meter DIA pipe conveyor (3.2 km long) to sampling tower in plant / dumping area. Bulldozer will be used to collect the residual cargo in hold which will be eventually grabbed out.
