Troughed belt conveyor for Nordkalk

Nordkalk tasked BEUMER with a turnkey delivery of a troughed belt conveyor (Fig.) that can navigate horizontal curves for the environmentally friendly transport of limestone. An 8.7 km long troughed belt conveyor will be put into operation in the northern region of Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea. This is the location of the largest mining site for limestone in Scandinavia. Every hour, 1500 tons of limestone will be transported from the new quarry in Bunge where the limestone is mined to the plant in Storungs, where it will be graded and stockpiled. “The BEUMER troughed belt conveyor was a clear favourite of ours compared to other transport options,” says Mikael Lindberg, Plant Man­ager at Nordkalk. “It uses little energy, is quiet and environmentally friendly.” It was crucial for the company to preserve the island‘s countryside during transport. This goal was achieved, because the BEUMER troughed belt conveyor can navigate particularly tight horizontal curves. That allows for flexible, continuous routing and the opportunity to bypass sensitive areas or to negotiate obstacles such as rivers, streets, rails, etc.
