Port Terminal Expansion - Alexandria, Egypt
Egyptian Ministry of Supply
Ibberson provided the technical and construction supervision, commissioning, and training for the electro-mechanical phase of this port terminal expansion project.
The expansion increased ship unloading capacities by 1,160 metric tons per hour (mtph). Concrete storage silos with a total capacity of 100,000 metric tons were constructed by an Egyptian contractor.
Equipment and systems added to enhance the existing terminal included:
The new marine ship unloading and receiving system greatly increased the ability to unload ships faster and reduced demurrage for ships in waiting, particularly since this terminal is a transfer point for grain destined for the interior of Egypt.
