Thyssenkrupp CSUs ready to sail to Turkey
Thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies is finilasing the load-out of two continuous shipunloaders (CSUs) in Nantong, China. The two CSUs are set for delivery to Turkey for a thyssenkrupp customer.
In a brief statement, through his social media channels, Reza Poorvash, CEO Europe and Asia (Eurasia) at thyssenkrupp Mining Technologies noted that the company’s teams in Germany and China are jointly executing the delivery. The CSUs are purposed for unloading coal vessels for a subsequent conveying of the coal from the jetty to a coal fired power plant.
Each machine weighs 1,300 tons with overall dimensions of 69 meters in length, 20 meters in width and 43 meters in height.
“In order to minimise the work at the customer’s jetty, the shipunloaders were completely erected in China and will be shipped in fully erected and pre-commissioned condition to the customer’s jetty in Turkey,” Poorvash said.
The shipunloaders will be transported onboard the SAL Heavy Lift’s Type 183 heavy lift vessel Lone, built in 2011 by Pella Sietas Werft. According to AIS data, the vessel arrived in China’s Nantong on July 20 and is yet to leave the port.
