At the end of 2012, SCHADE Lagertechnik received one of the largest orders in company history: for the new Formosa Heavy Industries steel mill at Ha Tinh in the Vietnamese province of the same name, a total of 21 machines were ordered. This construction site is the largest Greenfield project of the steel industry worldwide. In the first stage of expansion 5 million t of steel will be produced per year. An additional expansion of the production capacity to 10 million t of steel and a final expansion up to 22 million t of steel have already been planned.

Besides the customer will receive 6 semi-portal scrapers with a track distance of 40.7 m (discharge performance: 2200 t/h each). At the steel mill, a portal scraper with a track distance of 48.5 m (performance: 1200 t/h) as well as 2 boom stackers with a performance of 360 t/h and respectively 3200 t/h will be deployed (Fig.).
