More than "only" a pipe conveyor
The system not only consists of a pipe conveyor, but also includes the following:
Transport over 3 km to the jetty
The pipe conveyor picks up the material at the open access and transports it at a height of approx. 6 m over a length of 3,195 m to the transfer tower at the jetty. As the conveyed material is very critical, the decision for the pipe conveyor was based on the fact that it is an enclosed transport system and, consequently, the environment is protected against material loss.
