One of the keys to any industry’s success is the efficiency in moving its product through its terminal or processing facility. Through our history, there are only a few bulk product handling systems that Continental has not had experience in installing (and in some cases, designing and installing). Systems for various grains, stone, cement, wood/paper products, chemicals, pet coke, coal, various other minerals and many bulk liquid products to name a few. Continental’s material handling experience ranges from various loading and unloading systems to product movement through mechanical or pneumatic conveying systems and process pumping systems and to the storage and retrieval of those products.

Bunge North America | Cairo, Illinois
4 | Barge Load/Unload Facility

Illinois is the home of this barge load/unload facility that Continental constructed for Bunge, one of the leading processors of grain in the world. The loading system was supported on sheet pile cells installed by Continental. We then installed the bucket elevators, support steel, control pods and conveying. This project proved to be very functional and efficient.
