Bulk Handling
Radial Truck Unloader provides a cost-effective solution at
Greenwich Wharf
Owned and operated by Tarmac, (a CRH company) Greenwich Wharf is located on the south bank of the Thames, upstream of the Thames Barrier. It is the most central wharf for marine aggregates and since 1987 the wharf has processed more marine sourced sand than any other in North West Europe.
Regularly handling around two million tonnes/annum its deep-water jetty allows loading and unloading at most states of tide.
Barge loading has been an essential part of Tarmac’s operation at Greenwich Wharf. This has led to the recent investment of a Edge Innovate RTU220 Radial Truck Unloader. The RTU enhances the loading operation by facilitating a greater efficient loading method. Supplied by Edge Innovate; the RTU220 is designed to allow for the continuous loading of barges directly from trucks. This has resulted in increased efficiency in barge loading at Greenwich Wharf.
