Shiploader successfully commissioned in Playa del Carmen/ Mexico

Takraf USA, part of the global mining, bulk material handling and minerals processing equipment supplier, Tenova Takraf, has erected and successfully commissioned a 6000 t/h rail mounted shiploader at an important limestone mine’s port facility.
The client, a NYSE listed entity and amongst one of the largest producers of construction aggregates in the United States, is major supplier of limestone to North America, with the port typically loading around 20 Panamax (50-60k DWT) sized cargo ships per month. The new shiploader recently loaded the required three ships without incident, thereby successfully completing the performance requirement of the contract.
The shiploader was designed and procured from Takraf’s Denver office with structural steel being fabricated in nearby Merida/Mexico. The new machine provides many improvements over the existing 30-year-old machine including upgraded capacity, up-to-date VFD controls, improved redundancy, and numerous maintenance and safety enhancements.
“The Takraf team on site managed an unbelievable feat by removing the existing shiploader and preparing the new machine for operation in a mere three days – an incredible two days less than required by the contract”, said Tom Gramling, Takraf USA President. “This, together with the strong performance of our machine, resulted in the client expressing complete satisfaction with our service and how we operate. We strive to ensure that we work for the best interests of our clients and their operations.”
