Schade Lagertechnik GmbH is to supply six semi-portal reclaimers to steel plant customers in Taiwan.
Via China Steel Machinery Corporation, the German company will deliver four semi-portal reclaimers with rail spans of over 52m for enclosed stockyards operated by steel producer China Steel Corporation (CSC).
In the planning since 2012, CSC is currently completing a project at its Kaohsiung plant to reduce the environmental impact by enclosing stockyards, and the four new units will play a key part in this.
Two of the four machines have a reclaim capacity with a peak performance of over 3,000 tph of iron ore, which puts them among the highest performing Schade semi-portal reclaimers for applications in iron ore.
These reclaimers are also equipped with special two-way chutes to load two conveyors. The two other semi-portal reclaimers for CSC are designed for a reclaim capacity of over 1,200 tph of coal. Delivery of the machines is due to start in the middle of 2020.
Schade will deliver two further semi-portal reclaimers to another steel plant operator in Taiwan, China Dragon Steel, which belongs to CSC.
This company ordered two Schade semi-portal reclaimers, each with a rail span of almost 67m and a reclaim capacity of over 1,200 tph of coal.
Earlier, in 2019, China Dragon Steel commissioned two tripper cars and two semi-portal reclaimers from Schade.
