Handling Systems


Nowadays, concern for the environment is a key issue to consider during any project. Reducing the impact of coal handling systems requires advanced technologies.

Thanks to our long experience and know-how in the handling sector, we are able to guarantee eco-friendly solutions. We develop complete handling solutions from train receiving to crushing, stacking, reclaiming (either with scraper or bucket wheel reclaimers), ship loading or transhipping systems. We can design, engineer, manufacture and deliver turn key solutions for any plant capacity meeting the most stringent environmental and safety standards worldwide.

Some of our projects are: Covent in Louisiana (USA), ENEL in Brindisi (Italy) and the Coal Power Plant in Punta Catalina (Santo Domingo). You can read more about our most important projects in the following case studies or in the downloadable brochure.

Catalina – Dominican Republic

For the new greenfield Coal Power Plant in Punta Catalina (Santo Domingo), Bedeschi supplied a Complete Material Handling equipment set from coal receiving rail Mobile Hopper on jetty, to coal storage and delivery, up to loading point at the boiler area. The total plant capacity is 2x360 MW. The main feature of this supply is the 2150 m long pipe conveyor (D.700 mm) with a 3000 tph capacity. The difficult weather conditions made the design phase extremely challenging for the equipment and its structures. Indeed, the area is frequently subjected to heavy winds (hurricane & tsunamis area), possible liquefactions of soil and earthquakes.
