08/04/2016: Export port and storage facilities

Global Industries partners with Terminales Graneleras Uruguayas on Nueva Palmira port expansion project  

First published in Milling and Grain, February 2016  

Terminales Graneleras Uruguayas S.A. (TGU), a major company engaged in the international trade of grains and their by-products both in Uruguay and countries included in the Parana-Paraguay Waterway, recently teamed up with Global Industries, Inc to undertake a major expansion of their Export Port and Storage Facilities in Nueva Palmira, Uruguay.

Following extensive discussions and research, the two companies determined that the expansion would include multiple grain storage silos, a new dump hopper reception area as well as new material handling equipment to improve both the capacity and functionality of the Land Area facilities.

Additionally, the Port Area portion of the facilities would be significantly upgraded with a new ship loader, portable belt conveyors to receive the grain unloaded from river barges, a 600 MT/h Bulk Weighting Scale System and additional materials handling equipment to transfer the grain from the barges to either the ship loader or the storage facility, and from the storage facility at the Land Area to the ship loader.

Before construction could begin, considerable engineering work was required to accommodate the new equipment and support structures. Global Industries’ technical team in conjunction conducted these engineering studies with BILPA S.A. from Montevideo, Uruguay.
