Semperit has been selected by First Quantum Minerals (FQM) to supply conveyor belts to the Shoemaker-Levy Project. This project is an extension of the Ravensthorp Nickle Operations (RNO) in Western Australia. FQM's Ravensthorpe mine is the third largest nickel mine in Australia with an annual production of 30,000 tonnes of contained nickel.
Semperit designed, engineered and supplied 18km of eXtra Cut and Gouge (XCG) series durable top cover conveyor belts with a "low rolling resistance compound (TransEvo-Ultra) in bottom cover to meet the demanding operational requirements of the RNO site. TransEvo-Ultra reduces energy consumption by up to 25% compared to conventional conveyor belts.
