As a historic milestone for the port of Walvis Bay, Manica Group Namibia has recently invested in an advanced mobile hopper and bagging system. The bagging plant arrived end of 2020 and is stationed in port. The bagging plant allows for products to be shipped in bulk and bagged at destination; a revolutionary approach to bulk shipping.
The Nectar Hopper and Bagging system is one of the world's most advanced mobile bagging systems and is completely self-contained. Each unit contains 2 bagging lines with built-in scales, strictly certified in accordance with Dutch Weights and Measures, enabling a guarantee of accurately weighed bags and detailed records of delivered and received cargo quantities.
The plant’s efficient performance equates to significant cost savings, which includes less bag handling, direct delivery, lower transportation and handling costs, etc. It can bag free flowing bulk products at up to 140 tonnes per hour. The mobile design allows movement of facility between berths or even different terminals.
Manica looks forward to increased productivity and ease of business for their customers and providing a one-of-a-kind service, whilst promoting Walvis Bay as a premier bulk handling destination!
