The order Intercem received from Sea Invest by the end of 2016 for the delivery of trough belt conveyors as well as all related components and the transfer tower on an EPC base – from the piling, the foundation works, the steel construction, the cladding of the building, the roofing of the belt bridges, the necessary filters and chutes to the electrical equipment, the installation and the commissioning has now been – as contractually agreed – handed over without delay.
The ship unloading system includes two belts with a length of 100 m and a capacity of 1200 t/h. The first belt can be charged with material from a hopper over its entire length. Two towers were built, one with a height of about 8 m and one of about 34 m in height. A generator situated in the lower part of the transfer tower 2 ensures the emergency power supply.
The ship unloading system was implemented to be connected with the 2 x 50 000 t clinker silos and the raw material shed for Cim Ivoire. Thus a truck-free unloading of clinker and raw material will be achieved to suit the new regulations of the port authorities in Abidjan/Côte d’Ivoire.
