At the Uruguayan port of Nueva Palmira soya transshipment has been undertaken at the deep sea quay, which consists of a pier with loading bays extended to the North and to the South, forming an effective ‘T’. Stevedoring was undertaken by the Calmadon company, which has installed a state-of-the-art conveyor system there specifically for this. Inbound trucks, with consignments of around 30 tonnes, can offload directly onto a conveyor, which will then take the soya directly to a waiting vessel.
