14.01.2019 Conveying oil shale used for power generation

AUMUND China (see above) is additionally playing a major role in Jordan, where the country’s first oil shale power station is being built at Attarat, 50km east of Al Qatranah. As soon as the two 235MW plant units are commissioned, AUMUND technology will also be in operation here. Working closely with WorleyParsons Beijing and Guangdong Power Engineering Co. Ltd, AUMUND China developed the technical conveying solution for this project, which is currently the largest in the private sector in Jordan.

The engineering, procurement and construction are the responsibility of Guangdong Power, which awarded AUMUND China the order to supply four Type BZB bucket apron conveyors, with plate widths of 1600mm, and lengths of 69m, as well as four Type BWZ central chain bucket elevators each with a height of 53m. The conveying capacities of each machine can reach 375t/h, and the bulk material is bottom ash at temperatures of up to 350°C.

“The bottom ash is very fine, and spillage can often occur. This is the reason the customer chose AUMUND bucket apron conveyors, as these minimise loss of material. Two AUMUND bucket apron conveyors and two AUMUND bucket elevators will operate in each of the two generating units. Our scope of supply also includes items such as steelwork, electrical engineering and sensors,” explained Henning Rath, technical director at AUMUND China. Installation of the machines is planned for end of 2019.
