Caribbean Cruise - An Enchanting Experience

Unloading woodchip cargo

Below are some photographs that show unloading of woodchip cargo. The whole bulk carrier ship carries a cargo consisting of woodchips. The importer was a paper manufacturer in Japan. The cargo was carried across the North Pacific Ocean from the western coast forested region of North America.

Once the ship arrived, the cargo hatches were opened and the stevedores started to work on the cargo. The cargo was transported to the shore conveyor by means of crane operated grabs. Later on, as the cargo were removed until they reached the bottom, special tractors were carried into the cargo holds to facilitate the removal of all the remaining wood chips.

At the end of the day, there will be spillages on the deck. Stevedores would clean up the place manually.

For a 35,000 DWT ship, normally, all the cargo work will be finished in about 5 days time, and the ship will be ready to sail off again. For this charter of wood chip cargo, the ship will return back to the USA empty. One of the cargo holds will be filled with seawater for ballast.
