Conveyor belt system EMO fully operational

Europees Massagoed Overslagbedrijf (EMO) BV, a 100% subsidiary of HES International BV, has finalized an investment programme for the replacement of an essential part of their conveyor belt system this summer.

Having replaced all three conveyor lines along the 1.5-kilometre-unloading quay in 2016, EMO has now completed the renewal of the conveyor belt system on the West side of the terminal. The new system comprises eight conveyor lines, which are used for dedicated and efficient storage and loading services towards EMO’s stacker-reclaimers, barge loaders, train loaders and blending silo’s.
The project involved the total renewal and upgrading of the belt system, which has been functioning since EMO started its operations in 1973. By using state-of-the-art technologies and by designing out inefficiencies, a significant reduction in labour, maintenance and energy costs has been achieved.
This investment is in line with EMO's long-term strategy to continue serving the European iron ore, thermal and coking coal market. Ensuring customer performance, safeguarding Health, Safety, Security and Environment standards as well as EMO terminal's asset integrity.
EMO is the largest transhipment terminal for coal and iron ore in Western Europe and occupies a top position in the dry bulk market. Modern and multifunctional, the EMO terminal is strategically located at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam.
