Africa Terminal Hamburg
The Africa terminal is located at Kirchenpauerkai in Hamburg, Germany. The unloading installation has a capacity of 2400 tons per hour and consists of a receiving hopper and a belt conveyor for storage of aggregates, with a stock capacity of approx. 40.000 tons.
Bulk carriers or dredgers moored alongside the quay and equipped with a self-unloading installation discharge the materials in the receiving hopper. The reclaiming belt conveyor takes over the materials below the hopper and throws them back about 50m further at a height of 20m.
During unloading, the whole equipment hopper and conveyor can be moved alongside the quay in such a way that the stock can be extended.
