Lafarge to get the longest troughed conveyor belt in the world – 34KmPhoenix Yule to execute Indo-Bangla project(Chennai, India) — Phoenix Yule Limited, one of the exporters of conveyor belts in India, is ready to participate in a unique project for the installation of a 34- km (17 X 2) long conveyor belt system between Meghalaya and Bangladesh. Phoenix Yule will execute the project along with its parent Phoenix CBS of Germany. The belt will link Surma Cement, a 1.2 million tonne (mt) plant being set up by cement major Lafarge in a joint venture with Cemento Milnos in Sylhet, with the Kurmi limestone deposits of Meghalaya. This will be one of the longest troughed conveyor belts in the world and will be used to transport limestone from Meghalaya to Sylhet across the border. Such application of long conveyor belts requires specialised knowledge in designing, manufacturing and installation of such belts. Through a technology transfer agreement with its German parent Phoenix Yule is having the unique advantage to access the global technology and thus providing its customers the best of products and services. The civil and mechanical contract for the entire project has been awarded to Larsen and Toubro. T K Mukerhee, managing director, Phoenix Yule Limited said,’the major part of the steel cord belt will be manufactured at our unit at Kalyani and the conveyor belt project is likely to cost Rs 16-18 crore’. The installation of this conveyor belt system will require negotiating very difficult contours and terrain covering the hill areas. Given the challenges it is a rare project. The project is expected to be completed by mid- 2005. Phoenix Yule is joint venture between global major Phoenix CBS of Germany and Andrew Yule and Co. Ltd. Phoenix CBS is one of the largest makers of of the conveyor belt systems while Phoenix Yule Ltd is the largest conveyor belt company in South Asia.
