BEUMER is to deliver belt conveyors to Brazilian mining group

Vale Malaysia Minerals Sdn Bhd (VMM), a subsidiary of Brazilian mining group Vale SA headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, has awarded the BEUMER Group an order to supply 16 overland conveyors. For the specialist intralogistics company, this is the largest order in the conveying and loading systems product segment in the company’s history (Fig.). Vale intends to set up an iron ore distribution centre in Teluk Rubiah, Manjung District, in Perak. At the facility, iron ore will arrive from Brazil and then be blended and shipped to the customers throughout the Asia-pacific region. This around 100 million US$ order for the BEUMER Group is the largest in the conveying and loading technology segment of the company. Construction work is already in full swing. The loading terminals are expected to go into operation in 2014. A second expansion phase will run until 2019.
