FOUR MORE SEMI-PORTAL RECLAIMERS FOR CHINA
In October 2017, SCHADE Lagertechnik GmbH won a further order from Baosteel Iron & Steel Company Ltd., Shanghai, this time for an additional supply of four semi- portal reclaimers. These machines have a rail span of around 38m and a capacity of 1,500tph (tonnes per hour), and are expected to be delivered in November of this year. Commissioning is planned for mid-2019.
A year earlier, SCHADE Lagertechnik, a member of the AUMUND Group, secured an order to supply six combined portal type stacker-reclaimers to Baosteel Iron & Steel Company.
The six combined portal type stacker- reclaimers with outer rail spans of 56m are designed for a stacking capacity of 3,600tph and a reclaiming capacity of 1,200tph. This was the first time that SCHADE had received an order for combination machines of this type for the Chinese market, but it is now the third major order from the Shanghai Baosteel Group Corporation, which bodes well for SCHADE’s prospects in China.
SCHADE’s first sales success with Baosteel dates back to 2015, when it supplied two of its semi-portal reclaimers with rail spans of 31.5m and reclaiming capacities of up to 1,500tph of iron ore.
“SCHADE is securing an increasing market share and has built up a large portfolio of references in China, thanks to its particularly energy-saving special developed outboard roller scraper chain, and environmentally friendly technology features,” says SCHADE sales director Andreas Markiewicz. “Because of the compact and specialized design of the SCHADE machines compared with bucket wheel technology, stockpiles can be easily and cost-effectively located in enclosed halls.
