Reliability: Our coal operation
Stringent measures are taken to extract metals and ferrous materials from our raw product at three different stages in the coal chain. Quality Assurance is integral to our operations and rapid laboratory analysis is conducted during train loading at the silos. This provides clear parameters for coal handling at the port. The company Inspectorate, at the port, provides independent laboratory analysis for each shipment of coal in accordance with ISO or ASTM standards.
Our coal-handling infrastructure is centrally-controlled through an integrated computerised system. The stacker-reclaimers continuously rotate these reserves as coal is received from the mine or is loaded onto vessels. The dual functionality of our stacker-reclaimers ensures maximum flexibility without compromising the productivity of our port operations.
