Since 1967, VIGAN Engineering S.A. has been designing and manufacturing portable pneumatic unloaders, commonly called ‘mobiles’ or ‘grain pumps’.
Vigan mechanical Simporter unloader has been designed to meet very high capacity needs. It is able to discharge at rates of up to 1,500 metric tonnes per hour, and is particularly suitable for large bulk carriers up to post-Panamax when annual intake usually exceeds 1 million tonnes.
Up-to-date handling technologies for alumina are a major concern in many ports, not only to achieve low operational costs for the vessel unloading, but also for the protection of the environment.
Historically VIGAN started manufacturing portable grain pumps to convey cargo, for instance from ship to trucks/quay conveyors and vice versa, to load and/or unload silos or flat warehouses, etc . The company extended its range of equipment with continuous ship unloaders (CSUs) on gantry (pneumatic and mechanical), and mechanical shiploaders.
Bioenergy transport & logistics - Can pneumatic unloaders provide a faster and more efficient way to move wood pellets? - June 2012
An increasing demand for wood pellets from European utilities has seen wood pellet exports from North America reach a record high. In 2011, over 2 million tonnes were shipped to Europe; a 300% rise from 2008, according to a report from Wood Resources International.
VIGAN Engineering S.A. is a Belgian company located in Nivelles industrial area, about 30km south of Brussels, at the heart of the European Union. The company designs and manufactures port equipment for dry bulk handling, and is a noted expert in pneumatic bulk handling technology.
The Port Authority of Santa Marta (Colombia) set a record in the port operations of the country, taking only 46 hours to unload 28,000 tons of corn.
VIGAN expertise for wood pellet unloading - A co-firing power plant produces more ecological energy with wood pellets - May 2012
Alternative and renewable sources of energy are a major concern, not only due to limited resources of fossil origin but also within the context of worldwide efforts against gas emissions. New power plants, as well as some existing energy producers, are upgrading their existing technologies with the latest innovations in order to fulfill their legal obligations of protecting the environment while containing costs.
