TAKRAF supplying two conveyors for CBG Phase 2 bauxite expansion

In a fast-track EPC project, TAKRAF says it is supplying two conveyors for Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinée’s (CBG) bauxite expansion project in Guinea. This conveyor system package has been brought forward from the Phase 2 expansion project and TAKRAF’s award follows the successful delivery of an EPC contract, awarded in late 2016, for Phase 1 of the expansion project.

The EPC order was received earlier this year, with one of the conveyors to be commissioned at the end of the year and commissioning of the second expected to follow shortly thereafter.

The scope of the contract covers the replacement of two existing conveyors to cater for the upcoming and planned Phase 2 expansion, which aims to increase bauxite production capacity to 5,400 t/h. Both conveyors are being supplied by TAKRAF as complete new installations from head to tail end, complete with a variety of other unique features.

“The award of this important fast-track contract is indicative of CBG’s recognition of TAKRAF’s capabilities and of our experienced specialists that we can make available right across our project management, engineering and field services,” says Norbert Neumann, TAKRAF Germany: Sales Manager. “Congratulations to the team on winning this project and to the team responsible for executing and managing Phase 1, the success of which undoubtedly contributed to the continued trust this supportive client places in us.”
