Thyssen Stahl AG has installed and tested a demonstration-scale continuous ore carrier unloading system in the harbour of Schwelgern with financial support from the ECCS. The continuous-type ore unloading plant essentially consists of a short worm conveyor with a cutting device for picking up the ore and a (U-Con type) belt conveyor transporting the ore from this pick-up unit to the quayside conveyor system.
