Impumelelo coal mine is home to the world’s longest belt conveyor

Mining Engineering, 2016, Vol. 68, No. 10, pp. 14-14
Thompson, Michael; Jennings, Andrew


PREVIEW:

For a third time in its history, Conveyor Dynamics, Inc. (CDI) has designed and commissioned the longest conveyor in the world. CDI’s first record-setting conveyor was Zimbabwe Iron and Steel Company’s 15.6-km (9-mile) overland conveyor between the Ripple Creek Mine and the Orco plant (du Toit & Fletcher, 1997). CDI subsequently surpassed this distance in 2007 with the design and commissioning of the 20-km (12.7-mile) Curragh conveyor near Westfarmers, Queensland, Australia (Steven, 2008). The company has built upon the experience and expertise gained from these previous record-setting successes to design and commission the most recent record-setter, a 26.8-km (16-mile) long Impumelelo conveyor near Secunda, South Africa.
