ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has signed a contract to supply a large-scale continuous mining system to Italian-Thai Development PLC (ITD).

The mining system will be used to remove overburden at the Mae Moh coal mine in Northern Thailand. It is due to go into operation in the spring of 2020.

 

The new mining equipment, with capacities of up to 18,000 tph, will be used to remove, convey and dump overburden. Two barracuda compact bucket wheel excavators with belt wagons and hopper cars will be supplied by ThyssenKrupp, as well as two spreaders with tripper cars.

 

Thanks to its continuous operation, the new mining system has been designed to help reduce both operating costs and environmental emissions at the mine. This is made possible through the use of the two barracuda bucket wheel excavators that are able to work in hard material layers. Combined mining and loading of material by a single machine eliminates the need for blasting and separate loading operations.

 

“The barracuda compact bucket wheel excavator is one of our recent innovations for the mining industry,” said Torsten Gerlach, CEO of the Mining Technologies business unit at ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions.

 

“We are pleased to see this new technology supporting ITD’s future open-pit operations, contributing to a more efficient and cost-saving environment. As with all our mining solutions, this builds customer value by increasing yields while minimising impacts.”

 

Within the scope of the order ThyssenKrupp will take care of engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the continuous mining system.

 

Mae Moh mine is the largest open-pit lignite mine in Southeast Asia. It is located some 600 km from Bangkok, in Lampang province in the north of Thailand.
