A specialised carrier of wood chips, the primary ingredient in making paper, is called a woodchip carrier. Since woodchips have a low specific gravity, the cargo hold is extended sideways to the greatest extent possible to increase capacity, and the ballast area is solely positioned on the hull’s bottom.
The ship has grab bucket-equipped cranes and belt conveyors for handling goods.We only export wood chips in “bulk” quantities since we only send them to foreign harbours in large numbers.”Bulk Cargo” denotes non-containerized cargo, such as bags, bales, pallets, sacks, etc., that is not carried as a unit (in this case, wood chips).
The ship’s sole purpose is to transport wood chips, which are produced by chopping up wood.
Wooden chip carriers are designed with deep cargo compartments because, despite their low weight, wooden chips are often heavy cargo.The most popular kind of hardwood chip carriers have what is known as an unloader equipment, which is an automatic discharge conveyor.
GLOBAL WOOD CHIP CARRIER SHIP MARKET SIZE AND FORECAST
The Global wood chip carrier ship Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The delivery of the wood chip carrier STELLAR SYMPHONY to Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. was announced by MOL today. MOL will steer the ship and move wood chips on behalf of Marusumi Paper Co., Ltd.
In order to comply with stricter environmental laws, the vessel is outfitted with a SOx scrubber, a ballast water management system, and a microplastic recovery system.
MOL works tirelessly to provide a safe and reliable wood chip delivery service for clients, including paper producers worldwide, while being environmentally conscious and helping to ensure a steady supply of resources.
The ship also has a microplastic recovery system that effectively collects microplastics that have been repaired in the filter before they are dumped overboard. This system makes use of a filter with a backwash function. The ballast water management system includes this recovery system.
At Oshima Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a brand-new wood-chip carrier for the Hokuetsu Corporation was delivered.
The ship was given the name “Southern Ace” because it will transport wood chips made from logs that have been lawfully acquired through sustainable plantations in the Southern Hemisphere, and because it will carry on the company’s legacy of being a carrier of wood chips.
This novel transporter is an eco-ship that consumes around 15% less fuel than traditional wood-chip transporters. These developments have been made possible by hull shape changes that retain transportation capacity while utilising a larger propeller for improved performance. Additionally, the carrier has ladder fins that enhance the water flow created at the back of the ship.
