After completing a major supply contract for Taman Seaport last year, Schade Lagertechnik has been awarded one of its largest ever spare parts orders.
In October 2019, the first of two coal and iron ore handling lines was commissioned at the new Taman Seaport built by Russian firm OTEKO-Portservice, in the Krasnodar Region on the Black Sea.
As part of a large order for this project, Schade Lagertechnik GmbH supplied a system that unloads three wagons at a time, with each of the two triple C-frame wagon tipplers working in parallel.
Now OTEKO has placed a very substantial spare parts order with Schade. Deliveries will be made in various lots from the second half of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021.
OTEKO attaches great importance to having the wagon tipplers in operation as continuously as possible. It has, therefore, placed a spare parts order for strategically important components such as gearboxes, as well as for consumable parts, such as hydraulic systems, essential for operational requirements.
With unloading capacities of 60 wagons per hour each, the two commissioned triple C-frame wagon tipplers are part of the largest ever order for Schade. The scope of supply also includes four semi-portal reclaimers and three more wagon unloading systems, two of which are C-frame wagon tipplers for coal and iron ore, and a pivot frame wagon tippler to be used for handling sulphur.
Taman Seaport has been extended in recent years by OTEKO-Portservice to become the second largest freight handling port in the southern part of Russia. By the end of 2021, it is planned that further terminals will be established at this geographically significant freight hub, located between the Sea of Asov and the Black Sea.
