Business Case Study – Ship Unloader Acquisition

Liftech provided a business case study acquiring a ship unloader for a bulk handling facility in South America.

The study included investigating three types of ship unloaders (land-based continuous bucket and grab bucket, and ship-based types), preparing a basis of design document to invite proposals from unloader manufacturers, and providing order-of-magnitude cost estimates.   

Liftech also provided a technical report describing the study approach, alternatives and options assessments, a trade-off study, and recommendations for the preferred solution.

The trade-off study provided a comparison of the three alternatives, summarizing the advantages and disadvantages of each option, with scores based on evaluation criteria discussed with the client.
