An important Indian client and leader amongst the country’s public sector entities in the energy sector is continuing to place its trust in TAKRAF India with the recent award of three projects. The first project concerns the supply of two bucket-wheel reclaimers, whilst the other two, both representing firsts for the company, comprise a relocation project and two three-year maintenance contracts.
The two rail-mounted bucket-wheel reclaimers, each with a theoretical handling rate of more than 2,750 m3/hr, are being supplied under a turnkey contract, with handover anticipated for 2023. TAKRAF India previously supplied a stacker for the same project, which has been commissioned and is running successfully.
In a first for TAKRAF India, the company was also contracted to relocate a stacker and a reclaimer, supplied by another OEM. This turnkey contract is expected for completion by 2023 and covers dismantling of the equipment for a 4,000 t/h rail-mounted stacker with tripper car and a 2,000 t/h rail-mounted reclaimer, followed by re-erection at a new location some 5 km from the existing yard. The scope also includes reconditioning the existing reducer (gearbox) and supplying new spares for the reducer, such as slew bearings.
Lastly, TAKRAF India completed the first year of two maintenance contracts (mechanical and electrical, respectively) awarded by the same client for two 1,400 L bucket-wheel excavators and one 20,000 t/h spreader, all of which were supplied by TAKRAF. Besides this equipment, the maintenance contract also covers two 700 L bucket-wheel excavators supplied by another OEM, another first for TAKRAF India!
Selvakumar Devendran, Manager - Sales TAKRAF India, had this to say regarding this slew of new orders from the same important client: “These contract awards are indicative of the continuing strong working relationship between TAKRAF India and our client and the confidence they place in our expertise, technology and client service. It is very pleasing that our client trusts us with, not only our own equipment, but also with that supplied by other OEMs. We are also delighted to be growing our maintenance activities, as well as our aftermarket business and look forward to an ever-strengthening partnership. Thank you to all stakeholders and colleagues for their hard work, commitment and effort to win these orders.”
