The image show an Oshima-built bulk carrier is offloading iron ore in a steel manufacturing plant in Japan.
In a bid to effectively offload iron ores from the ship, a large mobile conveyer inside the cargo hold is operating to remove the cargo.
The size of the hatch opening is more than 14m x 14m to accommodate the large mobile conveyor.
Coal
Coal is divided into two types: the one is called coking coal used for steel
manufacturing and the other is called thermal coal used for power generation.
Coal Coal
The photos show an Oshima-built bulk carrier is loading coal onto the ship's cargo hold by using cargo handling equipment.
As coal is shot into cargo holds, cargo handling operation is going on under severe circumstances.
Grain
Grain is one of the typical bulk cargoes.
Cargo shown in these photos is wheat but grain cargoes are of various types of cargoes such as soy beans and corn.

The photos show that an Oshima-built bulk carrier is unloading wheat.
A bulk carrier of open hatch type with box-shape cargo holds carries grains (mainly for small lots of cargoes).
A grab bucket is most commonly used for unloading operation.
