Adani Power Dahej Overland Conveyor
March, 2010 -
This project began as a feasibility study and morphed into a complete detail engineering and commissioning work order. I was the lead designer during the feasibility stage. During the detail engineering stage my role shifted to project manager. During commissioning my role changed again to field engineer.

In 2013 the Adani Group commissioned a unique conveyor system that moves up to 6000 t/h of coal to a rail loading silo approx. 4.75 kilometres from the port. These conveyors are supported by lightweight triangular galleries that do not include walkways and are maintained with a motorised trolley.

In November 2005, Essroc Cement, part of the Italcementi Group, commissioned a long overland conveyor at their Nazareth plant in Pennsylvania. This conveyor, tagged CV-105, was designed to transport 1000 tph of limestone from the quarry to the kiln, and 400 tph of hot clinker (at 300°F) at back from the kiln to a handling facility about halfway back. Conveyor CV-105 is 8969 ft (2733 m) long. It gains 152 ft (46 m) of elevation in the first 1570 ft (480 m), then is mostly flat for the remaining 7400 ft (2250 m) (Figure 1). After the limestone is discharged at the head pulley, hot clinker is loaded onto the return side of the belt. This clinker can be discharged at one of two locations.
