Bedeschi claims to have strengthened its presence as a supplier of turnkey complete plants in field of materials handling.
On 1 July, the Italian company finalised its corporate merger for the integration of Bergamo-based ONT-Officine Nastri Trasportatori and Genoa-based Bedeschi Handling, which was already part of the group.
“Even if this operation contributes to optimising the operating, financial and administrative management of the companies involved, it also keeps the headquarters and facilities, and completes the acquisition of know-how, specifically for belt conveyors and plant engineering, started a few years ago,” the group declared.
Bedeschi has also strength its presence worldwide with a new subsidiary in Moscow, which joins exiting subsidiaries in the USA, Morocco, India and Dubai,
“Bedeschi Russia will actively contribute to the project management of the new OTEKO project in Taman,” the firm stated. “The project consists in the supply of a fully automated coal export terminal with a total aggregated capacity of more than 50.000 tph on the six loading lines.”
The supply includes shiploaders, bucket wheel stacker-reclaimers, and several kilometres of conveyors. The system allows the blending of different types of coal.
Bedeschi will also be one of the companies involved in the former Ilva project, now ArcelorMittal, plant that is set to be one of the most advanced and environmentally friendly facilities in Europe.
The company from Padua was awarded the supply of the stacking and reclaiming system inside the Primary Parks (mineral and fossil).
“The supply of new machines, along with the ongoing extraordinary works of safe confinement will have a key role in reducing the dust spillage toward the city, with remarkable energy-savings and improvements of the efficiency of the production and reliability of the whole plant,” said Bedeschi.
Already in its production phase, the plant will be operational by the spring of 2020, and its installation will involve many local contractors, the firm added.
