The hoppers, valued in excess of €1million each, are part of Buttimer’s DOCKSOLID bulk port equipment brand, launched to coincide with the order.
Buttimer has sold similar hopper units to the ports of Cork, Dublin, Gdynia in northern Poland and many others. Buttimer’s bulk port equipment is entirely engineered in Ireland – the two hoppers for ABP were built in Co Tipperary.

DOCKSOLID's three core features are: State-of-the-art environmental controls, flexibility of use & manoeuvrability, and well-engineered structural design for strength and longevity.
