A large 11,000 t/h TAKRAF spreader for the dumping of overburden was inaugurated at one of Neyveli Lignite Corporation’s (NLCs) mines during a brief ceremony on 9 Aug 2019, in the presence of Secretary, Ministry of Coal, Government of India and senior officials of NLC. The event was widely reported in the local newspapers.

Inauguration of Spreader in India

Further to the contract to design, manufacture, supply, erect and commission the spreader on a turnkey basis, TAKRAF India is also involved in the maintenance of the machine for the next 4 years. Such maintenance contracts are important as they guarantee the operator that the machine is kept in optimal operating condition with minimal downtime.

K. Gopal, Managing Director - TAKRAF India, had this to say upon this auspicious occasion: “Together with colleagues in Germany, I am proud of the good work, commitment and collaboration of all colleagues concerned, ensuring that we delivered this machine on time and most important safely with ZERO LTIs being reported. I look forward to this machine being put into operation and making good on our promise that Tenova TAKRAF machines deliver!”
