Partnering with our customers and suppliers to provide engineered solutions
In 2010 Rocktec designed and built a Mobile Feed Hopper Train for the UTAH Point Berth project for the Port Hedland Port Authority in Western Australia
The mobile hoppers are rail mounted, coupled in trains of three and capable of traveling 280m. Each hopper receives ore from a WA900-3 (10m3 Bucket) and delivers it to a 1500mm belt conveyor via an apron feeder located directly under the hopper. Two trains of three mobile hoppers (six in total) with control/mcc room were required for the project.
Each feeder features D4 Salt chain with 1700mm wide pans. An installed power of 75kW gives the feeder a design capacity of 2750tph.
All design and fabrication work was carried out at Rocktec in Matamata. To beat a tight deadline, Rocktec chartered a ship from New Zealand to deliver the nearly 700 tonnes directly to Port Hedland as virtually complete assemblies, eliminating dismantling and reassembly time.
