IRON ore explorer IronClad is claiming a world first after
successful trial of a system to load containerised ore from a
land base to an off-shore vessel.
“ The system we have developed is a flexible, low capital, cost-
effective, export solution for a range of commodities - not just
our iron ore – that has the potential to be used in an off-shore
environment anywhere in the world,” IronClad’s managing
director Robert Mencel said.
“ You don’t have to build deep sea ports worth hundreds of
millions of dollars to export your commodities to market”.
The technique has been successfully trialled in seas off the
Adelaide coast at Largs Bay.
IronClad says its “multi-user” system has the flexibility to be
used for transhipment of bulk commodities other than iron
ore - such as various grains.
“ This world-first style of off-shore transhipment operation
has been designed, developed and fine-tuned exclusively in
South Australia,” Mencel said today.
“ We are not aware of anywhere else in the world where this
same system is in operation, and believe it has the potential
to revolutionise the loading of some bulk commodities onto
offshore anchored vessels.
“IronClad has had to think outside the square to successfully
develop this system.
“ What we have done is combine them into one seamless
operation by making specific adjustments to ensure they
work efficiently in an off-shore environment. It has become
an intellectual property that has already attracted the
attention of other companies. READ MORE
