SHORT COURSE: Port and Terminal Operations for Bulk Cargoes

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling, University of Greenwich, Chatham, UK

Course Dates: Tuesday 10 - Wednesday 11 March 2020

Optional Pilot Plant Practical Workshop: Thursday 12 March 2020

In 2019 ABTO was delighted to have partnered with The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling to deliver this well received new two day course on 12-13 March.

Due to strong support for this course, ABTO and The Wolfson Centre are repeating it this year. During two interactive days Port and Terminal Operations for Bulk Cargoes 2020 will examine issues surrounding the safe handling and storage of bulk materials in ports and at sea, giving delegates the chance to discuss real life issues and to determine the best practice for future developments.

NEW FOR 2020: Our first course included a visit to The Wolfson Centre’s pilot plant. Interest was such that this year we will be offering an optional Practical Workshop, to be held in their on-site industrial-scale pilot plant.
