GAME Engineering has recently been awarded two contracts at Associated British Ports’ (ABP’s) Port of Immingham. GAME has worked with ABP on projects at several locations recently, so this reinforces the successful working relationship we have created with the largest and leading port operator in the UK.

 

GAME secured the contract with main contractor, PK Construction, to design, supply and install a 500tph fertiliser transfer and distribution conveyor system from quayside to storage building, which is being installed as part of the ABP Fertiliser Terminal Regeneration Project.

The system consists of two external overland conveyors, which are of totally enclosed design, the first being over 160m in length and the second link conveyor 48m o/a. These conveyors through a system of a diverter valve and transfer chutes feed two internal distribution conveyors complete with tripper carriages both of which are over 76m in length and feed the product into the desired ground storage bunker in the new storage shed. All of the conveyors will be manufactured in stainless steel for protection from both the coastal environment and corrosive nature of the product.

The second contract was awarded directly from ABP and involves the design, manufacture and installation of a 90tph minimum Fertiliser Bagging Plant, located in a new fertiliser storage building. The new bagging plant suitable for bagging 500,600 & 1000Kg FIBC bulk bags, will consist of both single product and blending reception hoppers, from here the fertiliser is transferred using belt conveyors, vibratory tray feeders and bucket elevators through a screening system, with the overs and fines being collected in FIBC bulk bags or tote bins, once screened the product is ready to be bagged through a state of the art twin head 1Tonne Net weigher system with the filled bags being removed from the two stacking conveyors using large fork lift trucks. Again the handling equipment is to be constructed in stainless steel with all support and access structures in mild steel, hot dip galvanised and then over-coated in a marine grade paint system. GAME also has responsibility for the design & installation of the electrics and control system of the bagging plant.

GAME look forward to working with ABP in 2013 and hope to secure further work in the future. If you would like to discuss a similar project please call one of our qualified engineers on 01522 868021.
