The enormous size of this system enables the flow rate of around 600tonnes/hour

The Beumer Group as main EPC contractor got a repeat order for a high-performance belt bucket elevator, type HGBW-HC 1250 x 175.3m.

With a distance between centres of 175.3m, this is currently the highest in the world.

ACC’s decision is said to be the the result of the reliable performance of the bucket elevators supplied by beumer Group to the same client in the past with heights of 174m and 171m.

The enormous size of this system enables the flow rate of around 600tonnes/hour to be achieved, ensured by high-quality steel wire belts of particularly high strength.
