Goliath Portland Cement marine export silos and the rail line that feeds them with the bulk cement carrier Goliath berthed alongside at Devonport on the Mersey River, Northern Tasmania, Australia.

Import and export terminals with central cone silos of 20,000 t capacity or more are built for long – term service.
Their great advantage lies in the fact that they require little space. In multi-compartment silos it is also possible to store different types of cement on a very small ground area. Loading equipment for vehicles – as well as mixers and packing plants – can be integrated within the silos.
Limitations to this concept are higher invest- ments and a permanent structure.
An example is the Davenport cement export terminal of Goliath Cement in Australia with a 20,000 tons storage capacity. The installation comprises two IBAU silos of 18 m diameter and 42 m height.
From these silos a cement carrier is loaded via 4 IBAU Pumps at a rate of 1,200 t/h. In combi- nation with IBAU self- unloading ships, the low operating costs and a high degree of automation make this terminal design particularly interesting for long-term capital projects.
