RONCUZZI Ship Unloaders for Iraq
Umm Qasr, near the city of Basra, originally was a small fishing town. It is reported that Umm Qasr was the site of Alexander the Great’s landing in Mesopotamia. Today it is the most important deep-water port on Iraq’s coast of the Persian Gulf.
In October 2012, WAMGROUP associates, RONCUZZI, welcomed a delegation of technicians and government officials from the "General Company for Ports of Iraq, Ministry of Transport" who recently bought two Pneumatic Ship Unloaders, type MACH-1, destination Umm Qasr.
The two units will unload grain from ship holds, each at a rate of 300 tonnes per hour.
The purpose of the visit was training on the use and maintenance of the new machines. Moreover, an assessment was made of the state of six unloaders of the same type supplied in 2001. Despite some damage suffered during the war those unloaders still operate to the customer’s total satisfaction. The RONCUZZI management looks forward to a continuing, mutually rewarding business relationship.
