Takraf brings its conveyor expertise to Vattenfall

Staff reporter

Vattenfall ordered the system in August 2014, the same month it began production, and over the next 10 months the two oversaw a “demanding schedule”, Takraf said, before completing the project in June 2015.

Scrapping, conversion and adaptation work was carried out in parallel with the assembling of the cross-conveyor system, with the help of a 250t-capacity Takraf transport crawler. In May the complete conveyor bridge was moved by about 10m in order to accommodate for the cross-conveyor system.

Takraf said it was already working on another project for Vattenfall, in which it is changing the large bogie and roller table at the F60 conveyor bridge at the Nochten open-cast mine.
