Port and Terminal Operations for Bulk Cargoes
March 12th 2019 - March 13th 2019, University of Greenwich Medway campus, Chatham Maritime, Kent
The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology at the University of Greenwich, in association with the Association of Bulk Terminal Operators (ABTO) will be delivering a course in March 2019 looking at the issues surrounding the safe handling and storage of bulk materials in ports and on the sea.
The course, Port and Terminal Operations for Bulk Cargoes, is designed to be interactive so delegates are given the chance to discuss real life issues and to determine best practice for future developments.
Subjects covered include:
Is it for me?
Stevedores, operations supervisors, port managers, ships masters, port developers, cargo superintendents, equipment suppliers and design consultants are all recommended to attend to gain an understanding of the reasons for the varied behaviour of powders and particulate materials as they travel across the seas or are stored and transported from ports.
A two-day course mixing practical demonstrations with theory elements. Time will be spent in the onsite pilot plant, working 'hands-on' with cargo characterisation testing.
The course will be held at the University of Greenwich Medway campus, Chatham Maritime, Kent on March 12-13 2019.
The course leader is Mike Bradley, Prof of Bulk and Particulate Technologies and Director of the Wolfson Centre. He has worked internationally on design and troubleshooting for bulk solids handling as a commercial consultant and research expert for more than 20 years.
Also contributing will be Richard Farnish, Consultant Engineer, who has almost twenty years' experience in commercial design work related to materials handling, specialising in metering powders; and Dr Rob Berry, a Research Fellow with more than ten years' experience in bulk solids handling technology.
The cost per delegate is £1,200 (£1,100 for ABTO members). The fee covers all course notes, refreshments and a meal on the evening of the first day.
