Conveyor solution for first oil shale power plant in Jordan

Jordan is building its first oil shale power station in Attarat, 50 km east of Al Qatranah. As soon as the two 235 MW plant units are commissioned, AUMUND technology will also be in operation here. Working closely with WorleyParsons Beijing and Guangdong Power Engineering Co. Ltd., AUMUND China developed the technical conveying solution for this project, which is currently the largest in the private sector in Jordan.


The engineering, procurement and construction are the responsibility of Guangdong Power, which awarded AUMUND China the order to supply four Bucket Apron Conveyors type BZB, with plate widths of 1600 mm, and lengths of 69 m, as well as 4 Central Chain Bucket Elevators type BWZ at 53 m high. The conveying capacities of each machine can reach 375 t/h, and the bulk material is bottom ash at temperatures of up to 350° C.


“The bottom ash is very fine, and spillage can often occur. This is the reason the customer chose Bucket Apron Conveyors, as these minimise loss of material. Two Bucket Apron Conveyors and two Bucket Elevators will operate in each of the two generating units. Our scope of supply also includes items such as steelwork, electrical engineering and sensors,” explains Henning Rath, Technical Director at AUMUND China. The installation of the machines is planned for the end of 2019.
