Eine der 39 speziell für diesen Auftrag entwickelten Hochleistungstrommeln • One of 39 belt pulleys specifically developed for this project
A contract covering the supply of an approximately 13 km long belt conveyor system was recently awarded by a globally renowned Chilean mining company to TAKRAF. This belt conveyor system will be installed in a copper mine in northern Chile. The scope of work includes, among others, the design, fabrication and supply of 39 belt pulleys specifically developed for this project. All pulleys are being fabricated at the TAKRAF workshop in Lauchhammer/Germany.
TAKRAF’s position as a leading global supplier in the engineering and fabrication of belt pulleys enabled it to meet the stringent requirements of supplying highly-stressed drive and return belt pulleys with a maximum diameter of 2.8 m and single weights of up to 60 t. Many of these pulleys will drive and handle the strongest steel-cord belt ever employed globally. 26 of the 39 pulleys have already left the Lauchhammer works, by means of heavy load road transportation with associated special permits; while the final belt pulleys commenced their journey to Chile at the end of August 2017. This extraordinary belt conveyor system, supplied by TAKRAF, will represent a major pillar of Chilean copper production for many years to come.
