New E-Crane Commissioned For Perdue Agribusiness

27 May 2018

A new 700 Series E-Crane went into service on May 11, 2018 for Perdue AgriBusiness at their Seaford Delaware river terminal.

The model EH 4290 PD-E will unload soybeans and corn from barges arriving on the north bank of the Nanticoke River. The barge unloading facility is a brand new investment consisting of the dock, new receiving hopper, conveyor and supporting equipment. The products offloaded by the E-Crane are siloed and distributed to local Customers or an in-house feed mill blending facility by truck.

The final commission and training was performed by Mitchell Phillips and Nick Detray from ECI-USA, in cooperation with Mike Phillips (project manager) and Thomas Bunting (plant manager) from Perdue. The local maintenance and operators who participated in the training did a fantastic job and we look forward to working together with them as the newest members of the E-Crane family!
