ABB completes comissioning & testing at Chuquicamata Copper Mine in Chile

ABB, working with TAKRAF, has completed commissioning and testing for the world’s highest-powered gearless conveyor drive system, enabling continuous operations at Chuquicamata copper mine in Chile. Project management and engineering for the full electrical, control and instrumentation scope was led by ABB in Germany, with long spells on site in northern Chile to work side-by-side with TAKRAF to equip the site’s new underground operation with a large conveying system that overcomes an altitude difference of 1,200m and covers a distance of almost 13km.
