DOCKSOLID Bulk Unloading Hoppers Exported From Cork (Video)

Two biomass Loading Hoppers, for handling wood-chip pellets, are being shipped from Cork to the Port of Hull this week.

Irish mechanical engineering company Buttimer are to deliver two ship unloading hoppers to the Port of Hull for ABP (Associated British Ports). The hoppers 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. Buttimer overcame strong European and international competition from established global engineering brands to secure the contract from ABP.

DOCKSOLID’s three core features are: State-of-the-art environmental dust controls, flexibility of use & manoeuvrability, and well-engineered structural design for strength and longevity. Condensed in the slogan: Clean. Flexible. Robust.
