The engineering acumen within Northern Ireland is renowned globally and the expertise within Telestack has grown and developed significantly over their 34 year tenure. In addition to their Aggregate and Mining Group, Telestack has matured within another material handling niche in the Ports and Inlands Terminals sector, designing and manufacturing equipment to load and unload dry bulk onto vessels up to Panamax / post-Panamax. Their equipment is involved in some of the most ground-breaking, exciting and forward thinking projects across the globe with the company gaining serious traction in other industries such as the rail, power, cement and steel plants.

 

Employing almost 160 local people, Telestack has demonstrated enviable year on year sales growth with sales more than doubling in the last 3 years. Telestack in the last 2 years alone have invested almost £ 4 million in their current Bankmore site with a state-of-the-art shot-blast, 2 paint booths and an additional manufacturing facilities which have all contributed to their impressive sales and operational performance.

 

Telestack’s international portfolio is vast and varied, and with over three decades of experience, they certainly do not shy from the complicated or intricate. Telestack recently designed and manufactured the largest international mobile bulk reception feeder in the world and the unit is currently loading aggregates onto barges for a large American multi-national corporation at loading rates in excess of 14 000 t/d. Telestack have also recently installed a unit as part of the multi-billion pound Thames Tideways Tunnel in London. Tideway are building a major new sewer under the River Thames (named the “super-sewer”) which is urgently needed to stop millions of tonnes of sewage overflowing into the River Thames. At 15 miles long, 7 m wide and up to 65 m deep, the Thames Tideway Tunnel is the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the UK water industry. The Telestack unit will be at the end of the tunneling process to load the tunnel clay onto barges fed from a fixed conveyor.

 

Telestack are currently completing the installation of a £ 5 million system in Oman for the Port of Salalah. The equipment will be another “global first” in terms of innovation, providing a unique shiploading system to handle the additional capacity needed by the Port. The 4 unit installation comprises of two shiploading systems, each suite comprises of a TB60 All Wheel Travel Shiploader fed by a Titan dual-feed All Wheel Travel 800-6 Bulk Reception Feeder and represents the new generation of mobile shiploading, offering all of the performance of traditional systems but with the added benefits of mobility, flexibility and ultimately a lower cost per tonne achieved by increased production rates, reduced cycle times and reduced labour costs. The equipment is designed to load limestone, gypsum and cement clinker at average rates up to 1200 t/h to Handymax, Panamax/Post Panamax vessels. Telestack began discussions in 2013 with the Port of Salalah technical and operational teams to design a customized shiploading system as part of an ongoing $ 15 billion infrastructure investment to cater for the export requirements of its local mining, quarrying and cement industries.

 

The company opens 2019 with its largest order book ever as they build on the successes of 2018. This includes projects for Africa, USA, South America, Europe, Russia and Asia to allow 2019 to continue the global penetration of prior years.
