Loading ships and barges

Our dry bulk loader guarantees quick loading of ships up to 30.000t – clean and reliable. Get to know the various application possibilities of our state-of-the art double jib level luffing crane.

The Louis Hagel complex does not have a quay wall. Therefore the loader is not fixed in the water but situated on a specially constructed floating pontoon, where it can be moved over a length of 104m.

Discharging ships

Our grab crane mooring at Hagel-South has a constant water depth of 11m (Chart Datum) for seagoing vessels. Seagoing vessels up to a maximum length of 200m and a max. width of ca. 28m can be handled here. Additionally barges with a width of 11m and a length of 100m can moor parallel to a seagoing vessel below our free-standing crane platform. 

Therefore, incoming goods can be transloaded ship-to-ship onto seagoing vessels or barges, loaded onto lorries or carriages, or stored in one of our Silos.

Transloading onto trucks, freight cars or container

For this type of transloading, goods are removed by our 12t grab crane using a hopper at the height of the crane platform, and it involves a low drop height. The goods are carefully transported via a closed conveyor belt to the conveyor belt system on land. The goods are then transported to two hopper truck loading station with scales which enables efficient loading of trucks etc.

Ship-to-ship loading

Incoming goods can be fully or partially loaded, ex seagoing vessel to barges or ex barges to a seagoing vessel, based on the type of ship to be discharged.

Storage of dry bulk goods

Imported batch quantities not accepted as part of direct transhipment, as well as entire shiploads, can be stored in silos 1, 2 and 3 A+B subsequently re-loaded onto trucks or ships etc..

Storage


We offer a wide range of storage facilities

Silo 1 for storage of dry bulk cargo

The dry bulk goods Silo 1 was built in 1998 and offers the possibility to store 16.000 tons in total.

Three dividing walls separate the warehouse space into four sections, enabling the simultaneous storage of various goods. While the warehouse space reaches a height of 24m on one longitudinal side, the height on the other longitudinal side is only 7m. This unusual form results in a 28° slope of the roof, which matches the angle of repose of fertlizer.

Goods are delivered via rail, seagoing vessels or barges; limited quantities can also be delivered by trucks. Irrespective of the delivery method, the goods arrive in the warehouse via closed conveyer belts. In the process, the goods are not ejected from the warehouse ceiling to the warehouse floor, as it is usually the case. Instead, they are handled much more carefully with a Hagel innovation: Both the storage and removal of goods is operated using a specially developed dual-function scraper. In storage, the goods are transported along the coated scraper surface and “pushed” upward by the scraper blades. Due to the variable scraper position, the free fall of goods after ejection is limited to 0.5m, thus minimising the formation of dust. To remove the cargo from the storage the scraper blades scrape along the conveyer belt system.

Removal by trucks or ships

Goods are either removed onto seagoing vessels or barges with our bulk loader or brought to the street using the truck loading station. For ship loading, the weighing is carried out using a calibrated belt scale and the cargo arrives on the ship via the telescopic tube of the loader. For storage and removal, the transloading capacity is ca. 600 t/h.


Silo 2 - Blending plant for fertilizer

SKW Stickstoffwerke Piesteritz and Louis Hagel expanded their collaboration going back almost 30 years in 2014. Since then Hagel offers the option of blending fertilizers. To this end, Louis Hagel installed custom-made boxes in an existing silo and adapted the conveyor lines accordingly. The result is an expansion in the portfolio of logistics services in the bulk cargo segment. The company SKW Stickstoffwerke Piesteritz, a subsidiary of the Czech Agrofert Group, responded to growing demand for their innovative mineral fertilisers by installing the blending facility at the Hamburg location. 

By utilizing this Group-owned facility, SKW Piesteritz is able to boost the capacities of ALZON 40 S fertilizer, for which there is very demand on the market. The blended product consists of environmentally friendly, nitrogen stabilized urea and nitrogen-sulphur fertilizer and has been developed especially to provide cereal crops with nutrients. 

Hamburg is an ideal location for that product to be transported in a timely manner and on short distances to the customer.


Silos 3 A+B for storage of dry bulk cargo

Our most recent built silos 3 A+B for the storage of dry bulk cargo were launched in 2012. The Concrete Silo consists of two identical boxes, each offering the possibility to store up to 8,000 tonnes of fertilizer and other dry bulk goods.

The supply of cargo into the silo takes place from the water side with the grab crane to the conveyor belt system, or shoreside by truck into two underground bunkers.

The goods are removed from the storage by a wheel loader and loaded weighed onto trucks or railway cars. We guarantee an environmental friendly handling of all suitable bulk cargoes. Our company is primarily focused on the handling of high-quality products (e.g. fertilizers), which require a particularly careful handling. The needs of our customers is always at the focus of our actions.

History


138 years of Louis Hagel GmbH & Co. KG in 2016

On October, 10th in 1878, freight forwarder Louis Hagel Senior founded the Louis Hagel company in Hamburg-Harburg on the Elbe River.

The company, which started solely as a transport company, was soon expanded to include a furniture transport line. In 1910, the company began transloading and storing loose and bagged bulk goods in the inland port of Hamburg. As early as the 1920s, 100 railway cars were being loaded every day in shift operation. At the time, the company already had substantial capacities at its disposal: numerous stables und furniture warehouses, around 60 horses, a fleet of 90 dollies, trucks and tractors, ten electrical cranes, 6,500m² of covered storage area and two office buildings.

The company’s successful development was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II: The then owner and Managing Director, Louis Hagel, son of the founder, lost his life in 1943.

The buildings and warehouses were completely destroyed, and the vehicle fleet and cranes suffered heavy damage. Although rebuilding efforts after the war proved difficult, seven of the ten cranes could be put back into operation as early as 1946. During this period, business activities focused on the loading of chartered trains for flour, grain and potatoes.

In 1969, company headquarters moved from the Hamburg inland port to the Southern Reiherstieg. A new grab crane and bulk loader were put into operation in conjunction with the move.

Since 1987, the company has been managed by Horst Hagel, the third generation in terms of Hagel-family managers. In 1993, he commissioned the construction of a modern bulk loader and, in 1998, was responsible for the most comprehensive investment in the history of the company: the construction of a large warehouse and expansion of the bulk loader. Louis Hagel is a “true family business”: Horst Hagel, his wife Gisela, and their children Sandra Reidock, Catharina Kunz and Philip Hagel are all active in the company.
