The order Intercem received from Sea Invest at the end of 2016 which included the supply of troughed belt conveyors and all associated components and the EPC-based transfer tower – from piling, foundation work, steel construction, cladding of the building, roofing of the belt bridges, the necessary filters and chutes to the electrical equipment, installation and commissioning – has now been handed over without delay as contractually agreed.
The ship unloading system comprises two conveyors with a length of 100 m and a capacity of 1200 t/h. The first belt can be loaded with material over its entire length by a hopper. Two towers were built, one with a height of approx. 8 metres and the second with a height of 34 metres. A generator located in the lower part of Transfer Tower 2 provides the emergency power supply.
The ship unloading system was built to be connected to the 2 x 50,000 t clinker silos and the raw material warehouse for Cim Ivoire. This means that the clinker and raw material can be unloaded truck-free in order to comply with the new regulations of the port authority in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.
