Iron Ore and Coal 3000tph Bargeloading


JSW have in recent years been developing their Port of Jaigarah, Maharastra, India and are one the leading private infrastruc ture companies in India. As part of the infrastructure development a new dedicated bargeloading jetty has been constructed and Telestack equipment is proving pivotal in their plans to increase its capacity to handle 50 million tonnes p/a with a total of 10 berths.

Telestack were chosen as the preferred suppliers for this project in early 2014, having supported the JSW project and engineering teams to develop concepts and layouts from the project inception several years ago. The units supplied to JSW were 4 x TS3042 Radial Telescopic bargeloaders. These high capacity and

high specification units were custom designed for JSW taking into account a wide range of operational requirements from the Client.


The units are 42 metres long and have 17 metre inner telescopic boom. The rated capacity of each machine is 3,000tph of iron ore and 1,800tph of coal. The 4 units having a combined loading capacity of 12,000 tph of iron ore or 7,200tph of coal making it one of the highest capacity bargeloading jetties in the world – if not the largest. The units will be fed by 2 x 6,000tph stacker reclaimer via a series of static conveyors with flow of one stacker reclaimer split over 2 bargeloaders.




In the last year, 1.8 million tonnes have been handled by Telestack TS3042 Radial Telescopic units since April and they have a projected output of 4 million tonne in 2009.

Each unit is equipped with features to both ensure safety of operator, ease of use and maximum reliability and performance. In terms of electrical items, each unit has a main maintenance control panel as well as a control station located in the operators cabin and a radio remote control to allow the operator to control the function of the machine from various positions.

Each unit has a double idler Schenck belt weigher for accurate monitoring of load rate and batch weighing of each barge. The operator cabin comes with air conditioning as standard with ergonomic operators seat and wind screen wiper to enable operation in fluctuating weather conditions.

The bargeloaders are also equipped with an anemometre which will automatically shut the system down in the event of the wind speed exceeding that of a safe and permitted level. Belt skewing switches, block chute sensors, tail shaft rotation monitor undercarriage and walkway pull chord switches and anti-collision switches on the boom are only some of the field devices on the units to ensure safe operational use – something that is paramount in all Telestack designs, Siemens motors and Nord gearboxes ensure a reliable drive system for the high capacity bargeloaders. Each unit is equipped with removable Hardox wear liners on the feedboot hopper and transfer chute, while the deflector hute has removable ceramic tiles with metal back plates and studs to ensure ease of removal and replacement for the high wear area. The deflector chute is a new design to allow the operator to refine the exactmplacement of material in the forward aft position.
