Doppelmayr: Second RopeCon® for the Booysendal expansion project

Booysendal Platinum (Pty) Limited (Booysendal), a subsidiary of Northam Platinum Limited (Northam), a South African based platinum and chrome producer, is currently expanding mining capacity at its Booysendal mining concession.

Key to the success of this expansion is the cost effective, reliable, safe and environmentally low impact transport of ore over topographically challenging terrain, from mining modules in the south of the concession to the concentrator plant.

To this end, Doppelmayr Transport Technology GmbH (Doppelmayr), headquartered in Austria and a subsidiary of the Doppelmayr group, the world’s leading manufacturer of ropeways, is currently constructing a RopeCon® system which will transport up to 900 tph over 4.9km, with an overall vertical climb of 530 m.
