SCHADE Bridge reclaimer with active harrow to homogenise coal mix

The Australian mining company South32 has awarded SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH an engineering order for a harrow modification, which became necessary after the alteration of the coal specification at the DMO (Douglas-Middelburg Optimization) coal mine in South Africa. DMO operates a coal mine in the Province of Middelburg, around 160 km east of Johannesburg, to supply a neighbouring power plant. As the coal is getting more and more difficult to blend, the bridge reclaimer in the stockpile will be equipped with a specialised SCHADE Active Harrow, to ensure homogenisation of the coal. In addition, the capacity of the bridge reclaimer will be greatly expanded by 1800 t/h to 2400 t/h.

 

The order, which will be completed next year, comprises the design and engineering of the Active Harrow, a new reclaimer chain system including drive units, and an upgrade to the electrical components.
