In October 2017, SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH won a further order from Baosteel Iron & Steel Company Ltd., Shanghai, this time for an additional supply of 4 Semi-Portal Reclaimers. These machines have a rail span of around 38 m and a capacity of 1500 t/h, and are expected to be delivered in November of this year. Commissioning is planned for mid-2019.
A year earlier, SCHADE Lager-technik, a member of the AUMUND Group, secured an order to supply 6 Combined Portal type Stacker-Reclaimers to Baosteel Iron & Steel Company. The 6 Combined Portal type Stacker-Reclaimers with outer rail spans of 56 m are designed for a stacking capacity of 3600 t/h and a reclaiming capacity of 1200 t/h. This was the first time that SCHADE had received an order for combination machines of this type for the Chinese market, but it is now the third major order from the Shanghai Baosteel Group Corporation, which bodes well for SCHADE’s prospects in China. SCHADE’s first sales success with Baosteel dates back to 2015, when it supplied 2 of its Semi-Portal Reclaimers with rail spans of 31.5 m and reclaiming capacities of up to 1500 t/h of iron ore.
