TAKRAF sizes up competition with RMU Banovici order

Bosnia-Herzegovina-based RMU Banovici is expanding the overburden handling capacity of one of its mines by installing two semi-mobile crushing plants, each containing one TAKRAF sizer model 12.24 with a capacity of 3,000 t/h.

The order, which TAKRAF received from a consortium of Bosnian companies, comprises the supply of the sizers and basic engineering for the plant including the structure, apron feeder and discharge conveyor. The consortium will execute detailed engineering and fabrication as well as engineering and supply of the electrics locally.

The high level of involvement of local industry was a key success factor in receiving this award, formalised at a signing ceremony in Tuzla on September 11, 2018 and reported live on Bosnian TV, according to TAKRAF.

Matthias Gnilke, MD Manufacturing & Services for TAKRAF, said: “These two sizers represent another important milestone in the production of TAKRAF sizers from the TAKRAF Lauchhammer production facility and are scheduled to leave the fabrication works in mid-2019.

“A key differentiating factor of our sizers is the fact that special focus was directed towards attributes such as ease of maintenance, reduced downtime and long equipment service life already during the sizer’s initial development. As a result, our sizers offer unparalleled levels of maintenance efficiency and service life.”
