Shunting Device for Coke and Iron Ore Unloading

July 2016 Location: ArcelorMittal Poland S.A., Poland

We have signed the contract with the Polish carrier Kolprem, who is the ArcelorMittal Poland’s subsidiary, in July 2016. We started some preparatory design and engineering works for production and installation of shunting devices at the coke tippler area in metallurgical plant at Dąbrowa Górnicza city. The scope further includes shunting devices system at the iron ore tippler at near Sławkow. Here we are confronted with certain specific issue as this one is the westernmost location in Europe where to leads the broad gauge railway from the Eastern Europe. We also have to adjust our equipment to specific wagons that have no buffers, but semi-automatic couplers.

The last but not the least, Sławkow is locality, where the investor requires not only the automation of shunting with exclusion of the locomotive, but also reduction of noise during the wagons shunting at the respective line.

Cable devices System for Coal Terminal

July 2016 Location: Port Północny, Sp. z o.o., Poland

The contract was signed through the auspices of our subsidiary ALDA Polska with the Belgian owner of the reloading terminal Port Północny located in Gdańsk, Poland in July 2016.

Our task is to modernize rail siding for loading and unloading of coal built in the 70s through the installation of the cable shunting devices system and to a high degree by means of that to provide the automation of wagons shunting during these processes. Thus, we are commencing the manufacture and installation of 3 LTV-PV devices and some new items from our product portfolio after many months of negotiation.

Nitric Acid Rail Acid Tank Filling, Sulphuric Acid Tank Filling

May 2015 Location: Lovochemie, a.s., Lovosice, Czech Republic

The installation of 2 shunting devices PZ 15 started at the premises of Lovochemie, a.s., in Lovosice, Czech Republic in May 2015.

As a subcontractor of Metrostav a.s., our obligation was to equip with the shunting devices the rail No. 14 for rail acid tank filling of the nitric acid at the length of 141 m (weight of the set of wagons up to 500 t) and rail No. 15a (rail acid tank filling of sulphuring acid) at the length of 71 m for shunting of the set of wagons having weight of 320 t.

Lime Meal Unloadingy

May 2015 Location: ORLEN S.A., Plock, Poland

The technology supplied and the installation commenced at the petrochemical plant ORLEN, S.A. in Plock, Poland in mid-May 2015. This involves cable shunting device LTV-PV for shunting wagons with lime meal. Commissioning on the 29th June 2015.

Separation and Classification of Coke

May 2015 Třinecké železárny, a.s., Třinec, Czech Republic

We entered into contracts with Třinecké železárny, a.s. for the supply of 2 cable shunting devices → LTV-PV in the area of the coke classification and 1 LTV-PV device in the coke separation area.
Implementation: Half-year 2, 2015.

Rail No. 813, Rail No. 201

March 2015 Location: Slovnaft a.s., Bratislava, Slovakia

We successfully finished the installation of another two new cable devices LTV-PV for chemical plant Slovnaft Bratislava a.s. in the spring 2015.

Cement Shipping Department

January 2015 Location: Cementownia WARTA S.A., Działoszyn, Poland

We supplied another LTV-PV device for modernized automated operation of the cement shipping department at the Polish cement plant WARTA domiciled in Działoszyn, Poland. The equipment is in charge of shunting up to 15 fully loaded rail cars (1200 t) during the filling of the rail bulk material tank cars.

The shunting takes place also at the rail scales and, due to the lack of space beside the track, the driving station is placed non-typically underneath the trackage level.

Transfer of Undersized Ore Fraction from Ore Sorting Plant

December 2014 Location: Třinecké železárny, a.s., Třinec, Czech Republic

The blast furnace charge is sorted at the existing ore sorting plant under contemporary technology. An undersized ore fraction gets from the separator on a conveyor belt from which it is filled into the railcars through the filling nozzle. The shunting device LTV-PV on the track No. 1563 is destined to shunt the set of rail cars during the undersized fraction’s loading of 6 cars (480 t).

The loading runs automatically without any interruption of the flow of material. The operator is monitoring the performance and controls it from the or sorting plant’s control room or as the case may be from the local box.

Dedusting of Tipplers 3 & 4

December 2014 Location: Třinecké železárny, a.s., Třinec, Czech Republic

Historically, our first installation of the cable shunting device LTV-PV in Třinecké železárny took place at the tipplers 3 and 4 – inside the production shop through which the rail No. 1565 was drawn. There, the wagons were unloaded into the receiving hopper. The objectives of this installation were to improve the hygienic conditions for the sinter plant staff, as well as to significantly reduce the air pollution caused by the tipplers 3 and 4 operation. Another similar shunting device was then installed on the rail No. 1564, where the operation is connected with preparation of shunted rail car sets for the tippler.

Commission for KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.

January 2014 Location: KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., Poland

Since the beginning of 2013 we participate in the design and engineering within the consortium of suppliers in large-scale commission aiming at resolving the logistics for the transport of hot slag from melting furnaces in Polkowice in Poland. The group KGHM is one of the strongest companies of the Polish industry. The consortium among whose members we belong, will supply to the customer by the end of 2015 3 accumulator shunting locomotives with two battery power rail cars plus 36 new ladle cars for transporting slag produced during the production of copper. These locomotives and wagon sets will be deployed in demanding conditions of continuous metallurgical operations.
