Tenova TAKRAF successfully delivers a CSU for the Port of Pecem in Brazil
Global mining, bulk material handling and minerals processing solutions provider, Tenova TAKRAF recently completed the delivery of a continuous ship unloader (CSU) to handle iron ore at the Port of Pecem, Brazil. The major turnkey contract was awarded by Secretaria Da Infraestrutura (SEINFRA) - Governo Do Estado Do Ceara in March 2014. The CSU has a nominal capacity of 2400 tph and is able to unload vessels up to 125 000 DWT. The CSU is equipped with a bucket-chain elevator approximately 35 m in height and with a slewing/lifting boom, which includes the transfer conveyor, for a total length of 42 m. The discharge on the conveyor jetty is via a vibrating feeder, a solution that has already proven highly successful on other machines, and which offers a number of advantages. Some of these advantages include being more compact and hence reducing the height of the machine; an important factor to consider given that the jetty conveyors are more elevated than usual. https://www.drybulkmagazine.com/ports-terminals/11012017/tenova-takraf-successful-delivers-a-csu-for-the-port-of-pecem-in-brazil/Upload News
