Spreading Cargo with an Articulated Boom

An articulated boom can spread cargo over a wide area. Here, a CSL International Pool vessel unloads coal at Salem, MA (USA). 

By placing cargo where it is needed, CSL self-unloaders reduce port congestion and demurrage costs because they:

  • Eliminate many time-consuming steps in the handling process
  • Eliminate need for cleanup
  • Discharge much faster than conventional dry bulk carriers
  • Reduce turnaround time by freeing up congested berths, reducing port costs and demurrage while providing more cargo in a shorter time
