woodchip carrier

This vessel specializes in transporting woodchips, the raw material for making paper products. Just like the transportation of grain, the cargo hold must be kept scrupulously clean and any rust must be removed.
Furthermore, maintenance of the complex equipment used for unloading the cargo, such as the hopper and the conveyer belt, must be conducted regularly in case of severe weather conditions at sea.
