The Flyingbelt is a remarkable example of engineering prowess and a more cost-effective, efficient and environmentally-friendly conveying solution compared to conventional truck transportation. In Brazil, one just started running after a successful collaboration between Sempertrans and Agudio.
For the expansion of its Barroso cement plant in Minas Gerais, Brazil, Lafarge-Holcim was seeking an innovative conveyor solution which would withstand a demanding production capacity without wreaking havoc on the surroundings. It is the longest Flyingbelt in the world and a more cost-effective, efficient and environmentally-friendly conveying solution compared to conventional truck transportation.
Relying on its long-standing technical expertise and product flexibility, LafargeHolcim and Agudio chose Sempertrans as their partner of choice to develop a custom conveyor belt for this outstanding project. It involved the construction of a loading and unloading station, designed by Agudio, and a single 15-kilometre-long belt tailored by Sempertrans to meet the specific performance, cost and environment-conscious requirements of the customer.
