"LDPL helped achieve complete operational redundancy of transshipping for the company: internal redundancy for each unit due to the design of its power generation and also redundancy through the presence of multiple self-propelled units. This is also one of the main advantages of multiple floating crane transshipper units compared to conveyor-based transshippers, as conveyor-based transshippers will need to stop the entire transshipment operations in the event of a breakdown of just one of the conveyor systems."Download full article here
