Taking note of India's recent growth in exports, the Government of India has taken the initiative to automate the ports along the coasts of India. As part of this intiative, efforts are being made to simplify loading of ships through use of conveyors.
Teknik has been quick to grap this opportunity and was actively involved in the prestigious project for automating the Ennore Port near Chennai (Tamil Nadu). It has provided 8 belt conveyors having total length of more than 6 kilometers for carrying iron ore at a capacity of 5000 tons per hour. The single longest belt conveyor is around 1.8 Kilometers long.
In addition, Teknik also developed an Apron Feeder of 2000 tons per hour and approximately 20 metres Long on which the iron ore from railway wagons is being dumped.
