BEUMER Supplies World’s Highest Bucket Elevator to Indian Cement Manufacturer

The ACC Ltd., part of the Lafarge-Holcim Group, is also benefiting from the construction boom in India. The Indian cement manufacturer has therefore expanded the capacity of its factory in Wadi in the south Indian state of Karnataka to 13,000 tonnes per day. The BEUMER Group as main (EPC) contractor reveived a repeat order on turnkey basis, for high-performance belt bucket elevator, type HGBW-HC 1250 x 175.3 m. With a distance between centers of 175.3 meters, this is currently the highest in the world.

ACC’s decision is the result of the reliable performance of the bucket elevators supplied by BEUMER Group to the same client in the past with heights of 174 m and 171m. The enormous size of this system enables a flow rate of around 600 tonnes per hour to be achieved, ensured by high-quality steel wire belts of particularly high strength.
