Porto Sudeste Information

  • Equipment and Infrastructure 2015-06-22
    Offloading from the MRS railway will take place on a privately operated rail spur capable of handling 160 car-long trains. Iron ore will be transferred to conveyors by two car dumpers which operate seamlessly and without the need to uncouple cars. Iron ore will then be carried by state-of-the-art conveyors and stacked at one of Porto Sudeste's two storage yards. With a capacity of 2.5 million tonnes, the storage yards are directly connected to Porto Sudeste's vessel loading facilities via a subterranean tunnel. Iron ore is quickly transferred to the tunnel conveyor by four stacker-reclaimers. At 1.8 kilometers long, the tunnel ensures the swift and safe passage of iron ore to waiting vessels via two ship loaders. Each ship loader is capable of loading at a rate of up to 12,000 tonnes per hour and can operate independently, loading multiple ships at the same time.

    Porto Sudeste hosts two mooring berths able to receive Wozmax size vessels. The facility will initially have the capability to handle in excess of 50 million tonnes of iron ore per year, with an expansion capacity up to 100 million tonnes per year.
