Unloading of More Than 1,560 Wagons in 48 hours

TAKRAF is pleased to announce the successful achievement of the 48-hour performance test for a major bauxite expansion project in Guinea. This important project milestone, for this complex greenfield/brownfield project, was achieved on 1 July 2019.

During the 48-hour period, starting 29 June at 00:28 and ending 1 July at 00:28, more than 1,560 wagons, which equates to 12 individual complete trains, carrying bauxite were successfully unloaded.

This important expansion project, which aims to increase bauxite exports to 18.5 mtpa comprises the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of a greenfield railcar unloading and primary crushing station as well as a secondary crushing station and a complex brownfield conveyor system within the client’s existing facilities. Of noteworthy mention, our TAKRAF sizers, one primary and two secondary sizers are also included within the crushing stations.

Andreas Papst, TAKRAF Senior Project Manager, had this to say upon this important milestone occasion, “I would like to personally thank all colleagues, including our partners on the client’s side, for their strong willingness to collaborate and solid discipline in the successful achievement of this important milestone. TAKRAF’s successful delivery of this important project is an important reference for us in and is a true testament of our ability to operate in complex environments, overcome challenges and deliver!”
