Watch our latest video from Mae Moh, the largest open-pit lignite mine in South East Asia

04 August 2020

In the last 10 years Sempertrans has supplied more than 145 km of conveyor belts to the Mae Moh Mine in Northern Thailand.  We have been cooperating with ITD (Italian Thai Development), the biggest mining contractor in Thailand. Watch the video and see how our colleagues from Global Field Service were on-site to supervise the splicing of our conveyor belts.

Our conveyor belts with the special and newly developed XCG cut and gouge resistant covers have proven to be the perfect fit for conveying overburden in the mine. XCG covers have a 20% higher impact resistance than standard covers and maintain excellent abrasion resistance.

The Mae Moh mine in Northern Thailand is the largest open-pit lignite mine in South-East Asia with a production of 16 m tons coal per year. It is operated by EGAT, which is the largest power producer in Thailand. The conveyor capacity ranges up to 18,000 tons per hour. This replaces around 450 full loaded trucks (40t) per hour.
