Coal barges are generally loaded with coal dumped from trains. The loaded barges are taken to plants by tugboats, which also take the empty barges away to be reloaded. This course focuses on the operations involved in handling barges from the time they arrive at a plant until the empty barges are taken away. It examines in detail the components and operation of two types of barge unloaders: a bucket elevator unloader and a clamshell, or traveling tower, unloader.
