Projects in the mining industry represent special characteristics and challenges for all allied parties.
The combination of know-how and the large number of completed machines and systems coupled with constant orientation to the state-of-the-art means that optimal technology and equipment can be offered for each geological situation.
The systems operate on sites with varying soils, under extreme temperatures and weather conditions and in most diverse operating environments.
Tenova TAKRAF develops, engineers and designs complete mining systems for continuous mining operations. Together with its partners Tenova TAKRAF supplies durable and reliable systems with high capacity, high speed and which are employable under diverse conditions and tailor made to each individual open cast mining project.
Due to our comprehensive know-how gathered from projects realized in hundreds of mining operations throughout the world, Tenova TAKRAF’s systems and equipment increase the advantages for our customers, whilst providing: optimum adaptation to the geological and technical requirements of earthworks and surface mining operations, low investment, the use of proven and standardized structural components, high availability, simple maintenance, low operating costs.
In conjunction with well-known partners in the international mining world Tenova TAKRAF performs project studies on complete new surface mining operations and the expansion of surface mines.
Tenova TAKRAF performs services in the planning and realization phases, such as complete supply, erection and commissioning of open cast mining systems as well as project management and quality control.
Tenova TAKRAF’s range of services includes structural and mechanical erection including high qualified welding operations and expert riveting, as well as technological planning and execution of complex erection. Tenova TAKRAF provides erection management specialists to supervise and assist erection contractors’ staff. Furthermore, in addition to providing, turn key installations Tenova TAKRAF conducts commissioning, final inspections and performance tests.
Bucket Wheel Excavators are among the largest terrestrial
vehicles ever constructed – the biggest built machine, the Tenova TAKRAF SRs 8000, has a weight of 14.200 t and moves 240,000 m³ of overburden per day.
The SRs(H) 1050 is the largest compact excavator worldwide with boom levelling function.The block digging efficiency of the SRs (H)1050 compares to that of giant type bucket wheel excavators even though its service weight is much smaller. The comprehensive design of the SRs(H) 1050 combines numerous innovative technical solutions.
Bucket Chain Excavators
Bucket Chain Excavators for soft to semi hard materials like clay, sand, gravel, marl, as well as lignite and hard coal.
Mobile Transfer Conveyors
Belt Conveyor Systems
Slope Conveyor Bridges
Spreader/Cross Pit Spreaders
conveyor bridges.The largest conveyor bridges in operation,
called F60, still demonstrate the optimum material transport out of the East-German lignite mines.Due to the mines reopening plans, an already shut down system in Reichwalde meanwhile is in refurbishment process.
For more than a decade, Tenova TAKRAF successfully supplies fully and semi mobile crushing plants with high crushing capacities to the South American copper ore mining industry.The largest fully mobile crushing plant in the world
will be commissioned in the near future.
Heap-Leach-Operations.For On-Off Leach Pads, TenovaTAKRAF developed a new generation of Mobile Conveyor Bridges with reduced number of segments and crawlers and simplifies maintenance and control.
