Erecting Kanon Loading Equipment Marine Loading Arm in Panama

5 Kanon Marine Loading Arms succesfully installed in Panama

The installation of 5 Marine Loading Arms at Terminal Bahia Las Minas, Panama


In the end of March Kanon Loading Equipment successfully installed 5 Marine Loading Arms from 6” up to 12” at Terminal Bahia Las Minas, Panama.

The loading arms were transferred from our factory in the Netherlands by boat and truck in fully assembled condition.

At site in Panama, the Marine Loading Arms were erected and successfully installed on the jetty.

Despite the strong wind and the cooperation between 3 different pontoons the erection and installation went surprisingly fast.

On 26 till the 28 of March 2019 the three-day exhibition ‘StocExpo Europe’ was held at Ahoy Rotterdam.

First of all, we would like to thank everybody who visited StocExpo and visited our booth.  We as Kanon Loading Equipment showed our Loading Arms based on our 40 years of experience and expertise in the business.

Beside our main Booth we showed our fully equipped Service Department (to show that we offer 24/7 service worldwide and perform refurbishments within the agreed budget and time schedule) at the StocExpo 2019 and received some great reactions.

StocExpo Europe 2019 is a great way to look at new trends, keep in touch with our partners, clients, suppliers and gaining new contacts in the industry.

It was an amazing experience and we would hope to see you next year!

Challenging Rotterdam Project Movie

The movie shows all project stages; Design, Production, Transport and Installation of four 20-inch MLA’s for crude oil import.

The challenge of minimizing the downtime of replacement of the old loading arms has been met in every way.  This is achieved by installing all MLA’s, including the steel structure, in one time.

Another TWIN-Arm project

At Kanon Malaysia Production Site, recently two Kanon MLA260 type Twin Arms were successfully factory tested and prepared for shipment to an Indian customer.  The Kanon TWIN Arm is a space-saving design which provides two fully independent loading arms in one structure, for different liquids or to double loading capacity.  Ether one of the two arms can be connected to the ship, or both at the same time.
