Glencore Xstrata Coal South Africa Tavistock 5 Seam
Tavistock Colliery – 5 seam project.
450 tonne per hour, coal washing plant.
What we did for Glencore Xstrata Coal
The project was for the design, supply construction and commissioning of a DMS coal washing plant, including a ROM tip station, a raw coal stockpile and all associated infrastructure.
The ROM tip station included primary, secondary and tertiary crushers, to reduce the ROM material to -50mm lump size before being deposited on the raw coal stockpile. The raw coal stockpile allows the plant to operate independently of the ROM tip station.
The DMS plant consists of a Coarse Coal cyclone circuit, a Small Coal cyclone circuit, a Fine Coal spiral section and a thickener & water clarification system.
The materials handling system includes raw coal conveyors, feeding the plant as well as outgoing clean coal and discard handling conveyors.
The E&I portion of the project includes two new MCC’s, a control room and provides for a fully automated plant.
The plant was commissioned in May 2008.
