Rico Neumann, Chief Mine Planning Engineer from TAKRAF presented  “Introducing the Crushing and Conveying Project at Lebedinskij GOK”. The ore handling system for our Russian client, Metalloinvest, will replace the existing railway ore transport out of the pit  with an IPCC system. The special feature is a high value of redundancy for an increased overall utilization by twin crushing plants and conveyors with diverter chutes and a buffer stockpile to bridge all kind of downtimes (e.g. scheduled maintenance).

TAKRAF is a leading global provider of IPCC systems as an alternative to a conventional “shovel & truck” material transport. IPCC systems offer many benefits to mining operations such as overall cost reduction (to be proven by studies), increased safety and automation as well as reduced emission of greenhouse gases, dust and noise.

IPCC systems include fully-mobile, semi-mobile or fixed crushing plants with downstream fixed, relocatable or mobile conveyors and dumping equipment for waste dumps (spreaders) or ore stockyards (stackers).

The virtual event is a precursor to the main IPCC 2021 conference, which will take place on 10-11 June  2021 in Mexico.
