Bulk Maize Discharging
The process of bulk maize discharging is identical to the process of bulk wheat discharging, i.e. it starts with the arrival of a vessel at the port. In this case, the discharging is generally carried out in two ports, namely in Porto Grande in Mindelo – São Vicente and in Praia’s port on the Santiago Island. In all other respects the procedures are the same, i.e. the discharging starts by means of a bulk cargo grab and wagons which transport the maize to reception silos. After the reception, the maize is immediately stored in port silos.
