Israel’s Port of Ashdod has ordered two self-propelled Bedeschi ecological Hoppers with active dust collection systems to help control dust emissions.

The Hoppers will be used for unloading of bulk grains and grain derivatives from the hopper to trucks. The discharge capacity of each hopper is equal to 800 ton/h, designed to work with 18m3, 13m3 and 9m3 grabs.

The machines are equipped with a rubber-tyred travel system on wheels with power steering and hydraulic jacks for lifting the hopper during the loading phase, which reduces the loads on the existing berth.

In October 2018, Ashdod Port announced it would become the first port in Israel that uses natural gas as a clean energy source by establishing a power station for onsite use, and a natural gas fuelling station, both to be funded by Ministry of Energy grants.

The projects were estimated to bring savings of 25-30% in the port's energy consumption expenses.
