BEUMER Group: Asia Cement opts for 13.7 km long Troughed Belt Conveyor in Sichuan, China

Beckum, Germany – Sichuan Yadong Cement has been relying on a 12.5 km overland conveyor from BEUMER Group in order to convey limestone from their quarry to their silo. When constructed in 2009 it was the longest belt conveying system in BEUMER history (The company installed a longer system in 2016). In a second project BEUMER installed two additional overland conveyors, with an overall length of 13.7 kilometres, transporting limestone to the cement plant. Unlike the first project, the task here was to build the conveyor across inhabited areas. Noise emission limitations set forth by the government also needed to be considered.
