Integrated solution for efficient material handling

Effective material handling systems must be individually designed and fully integrated so asto achieve a smooth flow of material from one section of a plant to the next. To meet theserequirements, thyssenkrupp will take care of the whole value chain from engineering to procurement and construction for the complete material handling system. From coalunloading and conveying to crushing and storage all key equipment will be manufactured inthe company’s own facilities in Pune and Hyderabad.

The scope of supply includes numerous belt conveyors with an overall length of 17kilometers, four twin wagon tipplers, screens and crushers as well as four combined bucketwheel stackers/reclaimers and one bucket wheel reclaimer. Both systems with an overallcoal handling capacity of 3,000 tons per hour each will be fully operational by the first halfof 2021.

Coal will be delivered to the site by rail either to a track hopper area or a rail car unloadingstation which will be equipped with two twin wagon tipplers each. A belt conveyor systemwith a capacity of 3,000 tons per hour and two meters belt width transports the coal to thecrushing and screening complex equipped with a total of four ring granulators and fourvibrating screens each. Two combined bucket wheel machines stack the processed coal tothe stockpile. When needed the material is reclaimed and transported to the boiler plant onbelt conveyors. The stockyard machines will be capable of handling 3,000 tons of coal perhour both in stacking and reclaiming modes.
