ACC Ltd, an Indian cement manufacturer, has expanded the capacity of its factory in Wadi, in the south Indian state of Karnataka, to 13,000 tons per day. As the main (EPC) contractor, the BEUMER Group has received a repeat order on turnkey, for high-performance belt bucket elevator, type HGBW-HC 1250 x 175.3 m. With a distance between centers of 175.3 m, this is currently the highest in the world.
ACC’s decision is the result of the reliable performance of the bucket elevators supplied by BEUMER Group to the same client in the past with heights of 174 and 171 m. The enormous size of this system enables a flow rate of about 600 tn/hr, ensured by high-quality, high strength steel wire belts.
