From 1 July, Bedeschi finalised a corporate merger for the integration of Officine Nastri Trasportatori (ONT) based in Bergamo, and Bedeschi Handling based in Genoa. This operation will contribute to optimising operations and the financial and administrative management of the companies involved. It also keeps the headquarters and facilities, and completes the acquisition of know-how specific for belt conveyors and plant engineering started that was started a few years ago.
Bedeschi also strengthens its presence worldwide with a new subsidiary in Moscow, in addition to those in the US, Morocco, India, and Dubai. Bedeschi Russia will actively contribute to the project management of the new OTEKO project in Taman. The project consists of the supply of a fully automated coal export terminal, with a total aggregated capacity of more than 50 000 tph on the six loading lines. The supply includes bucket wheel stacker-reclaimers and several kilometers of conveyors and ship-loaders. The system allows the blending of different types of coal.
Bedeschi will also be one of the companies involved in the ArcelorMittal project, formerly known as the Ilva project. This plant is aiming to be one of the most advanced and environmentally friendly facilities in Europe. The company from Padua was awarded the supply of the stacking and reclaiming system inside the primary parks (mineral and fossil).
The supply of the new machines will have a key role in reducing the dust spillage towards the city, with energy savings and improved efficiency of both the production and the reliability of the plant. Currently in its production phase, the plant is expected to begin operations by spring 2020, which will involve many local contractors for its installation.
