Continued Success at Neyveli for TAKRAF India

A large 11,000 t/h TAKRAF spreader for the dumping of overburden was inaugurated at one of Neyveli Lignite Corporation’s (NLCs) mines during a brief ceremony on 9 Aug 2019, in the presence of Secretary, Ministry of Coal, Government of India and senior officials of NLC. The event was widely reported in the local newspapers.

TAKRAF - Inauguration Spreader in India

Further to the contract to design, manufacture, supply, erect and commission the spreader on a turnkey basis, TAKRAF India is also involved in the maintenance of the machine for the next 4 years. Such maintenance contracts are important as they guarantee the operator that the machine is kept in optimal operating condition with minimal downtime.

K. Gopal, Managing Director - TAKRAF India, had this to say upon this auspicious occasion: “Together with colleagues in Germany, I am proud of the good work, commitment and collaboration of all colleagues concerned, ensuring that we delivered this machine on time and most important safely with ZERO LTIs being reported. I look forward to this machine being put into operation and making good on our promise that Tenova TAKRAF machines deliver!”
