The engineers from SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH have received more good news from the Chinese steel industry, to add to their recent increase in market share of their machines in the power industry in Asia. Teaming up with AUMUND Beijing, SCHADE secured an order from the Baosteel Iron & Steel Company for the supply of six combined reclaimers. These new machines will be installed this year and next year on the same site as two SCHADE semi-portal reclaimers supplied previously.
The two existing machines, each with a rail span of 31.5 m and a reclaiming capacity of up to 1500 t/h iron ore, were installed as recently as 2015 at Shanghai Baosteel Group Corporation, the second largest Chinese iron and steel conglomerate. The six combined stacker-reclaimers with stackers have an outer rail span of 56 m and are designed to stack 3600 t/h and reclaim up to 1200 t/h. This is the first time that SCHADE is supplying combination machines such as these for the Chinese market. More than a dozen SCHADE semi-portal reclaimers have now been installed in steel plants in China.
