Metso and the industrial service provider Ferrostaal Industrieanlagen GmbH, Germany have been awarded a joint contract to build a railcar dumper facility for the iron ore producer Société Nationale Industrielle et Minière (SNIM) in the harbor of Nouadhibou in Mauritania (Fig.). The aim is to increase the annual iron ore production capacity up to 40 million t in 2025 through the start-up of a new iron ore plant GUELB II in mid-2014. Ferrostaal and Metso will deliver the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the new railcar dumper. The delivery also includes an automatic positioner to move the loaded wagons into the dumper and also an automatic extractor to remove the unloaded wagons. This new system will boost the facilities‘ throughput capacity up to 6000 t/h. The new railcar dumper facility will be operational in 2015.
