The belt conveyor system consists of a sacrificial conveyor and an overland conveyor. The latter features a negative lift of around 150 m, as well as including various horizontal and vertical belt curves along its length. Furthermore, a new loading module for an existing belt conveyor is also to be supplied.
TAKRAF's scope of supply includes all structural and mechanical components as well as essential electrical and instrumentation equipment. Commissioning is planned to be completed towards the middle of 2024.
Marc Hollinger, TAKRAF Project Manager, had this to say recently on his return back from South America: “Many colleagues contributed to this successful project award and there was great interaction between all the TAKRAF offices involved. I would like to personally thank all these colleagues for their commitment and teamwork. This important material handling project only serves to entrench TAKRAF as a leading global provider of high-capacity material handling systems that overcome numerous challenges and we look forward to an ever-expanding base of satisfied clients in South America".
