Takraf CSU to Port of Pecem

Tenova Takraf has delivered a continuous ship-unloader (CSU) to the Port of Pecem in Brazil for handling iron ore. The major turnkey contract was awarded by Secretaria Da Infraestrutura (SEINFRA) - Governo Do Estado Do Ceará in March 2014.

The CSU has a nominal capacity of 2,400 tph, and is able to unload vessels up to 125,000 dwt. It is equipped with a bucket-chain elevator approximately 35m in height and with a slewing/ lifting boom, which includes the transfer conveyor, for a total length of 42m. The discharge on the conveyor jetty is via a vibrating feeder, a solution that has proved highly successful on other machines, and which offers a number of advantages, according to Takraf. 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.

 

The project was a collaborative effort between various Takraf offices, the company said. Design and construction of the CSU was carried out in Italy, with Takraf’s China office engaged and overseeing all matters related to complete manufacturing and assembly, whilst the company’s Brazil office was responsible for all local project activities up to commissioning.

Takraf has also won recent contract awards for bucketchain CSUs from ENEL (the main Italian power station in Brindisi and Civitavecchia) and ILVA (Taranto Iron & Steel Works, also in Italy).
