Sennebogens 840 M Special unloading wheat at Hamm Harbour (Germany)

At Hamm harbor a Sennebogen 840 M Special is at work in a demanding materials handling application. Hourly the machine unloads up to 400 t of wheat from arriving ships. The wheat is milled and further processed by Jäckering Mühlen- und Nährmittelwerke. The challenge associated with the logistics concept was the depth of the harbor basin in conjunction with the higher positioned silo hopper. In close collaboration with the customer it was possible to configure the Sennebogen 840 as the optimal machine, and it has now completely replaced the three former harbor rail cranes. In order to achieve an appropriate reaching depth in the hull, and simultaneously cover the height of the silo hopper, the machine was elevated by 2.7 m with a mast. The 840 M special has a 20 m equipment length with special materials handling kinematics. The all-wheel drive of the wide-gauge undercarriage also ensures flexible implementation of the materials handling machine along the harbor basin where it replaced 3 rail based cranes. Delivering up to 400 tph, the machine already delivers more than the existing hopper can process
