Over the past few years, SCHADE has won several orders for large-scale circular and longitudinal stockpile equipment in China, South Korea and other countries of Southeast Asia. The Limay II project is the third in a row in the Philippines, where the projects are partly running in parallel. SCHADE Lagertechnik, a member of the AUMUND Group, had previously supplied two Semi-Portal Reclaimers with capacities of 770 t/h and two Tripper Cars with capacities of up to 1540 t/h for the Limay I power plant. This project was successfully handed over last summer. Before that, SCHADE was awarded the order for several machines for the Malita power plant project, also in the Philippines. Each time the customer was a concern from Taiwan which constructs coal-fired power stations in the Philippines for the San Miguel Corporation.
In all projects, the option to store relatively large amounts of material on a small surface area played an important role. Other advantages of the equipment were the ease of reclaiming and stacking the coal, as well as the suitability of this design for different types of coal, some of which can be highly volatile. For longitudinal stockpiling SCHADE offers a large variety of enclosed solutions with its Semi-Portal Reclaimers, so that even large volumes of material (over 1 million t of coal) can be stored in a small, enclosed area. In a circular stockpile, storage capacities of around 360 000 t are possible.
