Continuous barge unloader

The high capacity vessel unloading solution

Metso high-capacity continuous barge unloaders employ various style digging ladders to service all types of river, gulf and ocean vessels throughout the world.


  • The hinged (pivoted) digging ladder unloader provides optimum service for low water level fluctuations.
  • The cantilevered, single or double digging ladder unloader will accommodate large water level fluctuations.
  • Both hinged and cantilevered types can discharge up to 4,500 mtph.

  • A cleaner, less polluting operation
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Lower power consumption
  • Excellent overall unloading efficiency rate that allows faster barge/vessel turnaround

A shuttle barge haul system provides efficient and accurate method of positioning barges.  This system effectively reduces handling costs, as it requires fewer operators and allows quicker barge throughput and fleet turnaround.
