It received the contract earlier this year from DTP Mining, part of Bouygues Construction of France, and the end-customer is Guinea Alumina Corporation, part of Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) of Abu Dhabi.


The plant is located at Kamsar in the Boké region of northern Guinea. Bedeschi’s scope of supply included a 420m-long storage belt conveyor, and stacker with a 42m-long boom and a capacity of 3,000 tph.


The stacker is capable of handling bauxite both in dry and wet conditions, when the material becomes sticky due to the humidity. The Bauxite is stored in two stockpiles of 160,000t each using the chevron method (pictured).


“Leveraging our experience with moist, plastic and sticky material with our proprietary bucket solutions, we can now offer a wide variety of tailor-made solutions to transport and store any type of bulk material like coal, clay, iron ore, limestone, fertiliser, clinker, cereals and many others, covering any capacity from 100 to 10,000 tph,” the Italian company stated.
