Enco provided the design and supply of a spare boom for ALPART’s existing ship loader at Port Kaiser Jamaica. The existing ship loader handles alumina at a rate of 1000 tph. The new boom incorporates design modifications to improve access and maintenance and utilizes a telescoping airslide conveyor providing 45’ of travel with a total reach, outboard of fender line, of 65’. The boom has luffing capabilities and is constructed of structural grade aluminum. This project was delivered in March 1998.
