– Important investment realised this year on the site of Grand-Couronne : the replacement of 3 pylons by 3 new shiploaders.
This site is now the only one in the port of Rouen who is capable to load Panamax type boats in the depth limite allowed by the channel. These shiploaders enable a loading of 3 000 KT per hour without any dust emanation.
