Sandvik Mining and Construction receives major order for materials-handling system in the Netherlands

Sandvik Mining and Construction has signed an agreement with the energy company RWE Power AG in the Netherlands for a turnkey materials-handling system.

The value of the order is approximately SEK 650 M and comprises a complete materials-handling system for the Eemshaven Power Plant in the Netherlands. The project includes two grab-type ship unloaders, two stackers and three portal reclaimers. In addition to the mobile equipment, Sandvik will deliver a high-performance conveyor system with 38 conveyors for coal, which is also suitable for biomass. For environmental reasons, the conveyors will be enclosed using a state-of-the-art chute design.

"This order confirms Sandvik's strong customer offering and demonstrates our capabilities of providing excellent technical solutions based on Sandvik's vast experience in designing and supporting complete materials-handling systems," says Lars Josefsson, President of Sandvik Mining and Construction.
