CSL self-unloaders can discharge mountains of cargo, in this case sand and stone onto a beach at Bequia in the Grenadines without unloading or docking facilities at the site. The ship moored to an unwater shelf and used her 76-metre long articulated boom to deliver the 50,000-tonne cargo.
By simplifying docking requirements, CSL self-unloaders keep customers' costs low by :
- Minimizing their investment in docks and handling equipment
- Reducing their need for shore labor
