A single ­tandem rotary railcar dumper to Australia

Metso will supply a single tandem rotary railcar dumper (Fig.) to Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd, a member of Rio Tinto Group, for its Cape Lambert, Port B iron ore operation in North Western Australia. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The railcar dumper will be the latest and most advanced available in the Metso offering and will feature a unique single tandem configuration. This design allows for lower maintenance and higher, more efficient material output flow. Ease and safety of maintenance is also improved through a reduction of overall components.
