Two Sennebogen 875E and two 850M materials handler have been added to the fleet of six Sennebogen machines already operating at MMTP, which is the largest operator of the Russian Barents Sea harbour, and is controlled by Russia’s major coal producer SUEK.

The 875E is Sennebogen’s largest machine in the class. Equipped with a crawler portal undercarriage, it stands directly on the rails, in order to remove coal from gondola cars with a 5 m3 double shell grab.

Due to a track width of 5.8m and a passage height of 5m, the undercarriage spans one of the two rail lines, but can serve both tracks simultaneously, one directly underneath the machine and one parallel to it.

In addition, the 395 kW dieseldriven materials handler has a 24m range, and alternates between unloading railcars on the right and left in a continuous cycle.

The first Sennebogen 875E was acquired by MMTP in 2015, before which the port operator used Sennebogen 830 and Sennebogen 835 handlers.

All the materials handlers operating at Murmansk are optimised with a low-temperature package for use at Arctic temperatures. This includes numerous preheating mechanisms for the equipment and the Green Hybrid system, as well as special lubricants for temperatures down to -35 degC.

Earlier this year, MMTP put into operation two new Aist portal cranes for handling bulk cargoes, manufactured by St Petersburg based SMM. With its 10 m3 grab, each Aist is capable of handling up to 10t in one cycle. Four more Aists are slated to start operations at the harbour within 2018-19. In this way, MMTP is planning to renew half of its crane complement. In addition, the operator received a Volvo L150 H loader with a 6.8 m3 bucket.

Finally, SUEK is planning to invest around US$25M in MMTP’s environmental defence this year. Measures include dust suppression systems, enclosing storage areas, and protective walls and screens. The initiatives are expected to reduce the volume of emissions by 90%, and the level of coal dust erosion by a factor of 200.
