New RopeCon system starts up in Guatamala

Published by
World Cement,

A RopeCon system that will transport limestone from the quarry to the processing area has taken place in Guatemala. The RopeCon covers a length of about 1.6 km and covers a vertical rise of almost 200 m, crossing wooded terrain.

The limestone will feed Cementos Progreso’s new cement plant, which is due to begin operations in the first half of this year. From the start of the operations, the RopeCon will transport 2100 tph of material.

The RopeCon system requires only four tower structures, limiting the space required on the ground. RopeCon was developed and designed by Austrian ropeway manufacturer, Doppelmayr, and combines the features of a belt conveyor with those of a ropeway.

The technology is currently used to transport a variety of materials in different applications around the world.
