Het aanpassen van het zeekadesysteem van EECV aan een gecombineerde overslag
van ijzererts en steenkool.
Report 92.3.TT.3036, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
The expected abolition in the near future of the German subsidy on
metallurgic coal from Germany will have as a result that because of the high
cost price of German coal, a large part of the in Germany required coal will
be imported. Ertsoverslagbedrijf Europoort C.V. (EECV) is an ore handling
terminal in the Europoort, Rotterdam, which handles about 24 million tons of
iron-ore and additional bulkmaterials per year for four large German
steelfactories. Because the organisation and the infrastructure partly
already exists, is an expansion of the activities of EECV to the handling of
metallurgic coal a logic step.
In this report a review has been made of the technical possibility to make
the present facilities on the quay for sea-going vessels fit for the
handling of ore and coal. The number of beltconveyors on the quay have to be
increased from 2 to 4, with as result that the system of the existing cranes
that makes a choice possible which conveyor will be supplied have to be
altered. The 2 new conveyors that have to be build will not be as long as
the quay in order to prevent unnacessary investments. However the
cranes have to be able to pass by the terminal point of the conveyors. In
order to make this possible an other system that supports the belt of the
conveyor in the point where the massflow from the crane hits the belt then
the present one have to be used. Finally a connection between the conveyors
on the quay and the conveyors of the coalterminal have to be made. In this
case a minimum use of space is very important.
