zoom South Australia’s container terminal operator, Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal, has added two new Post-Panamax Liebherr cranes as part of the plan to shorten vessel turn-around times.The ship-to-shore cranes, ordered in January 2014, are 65 metres high and capable of reaching heights of 105 metres with the boom raised.They represent a AUD 24 million investment for Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal, and are due to be deployed for active service in April 2015 following a commissioning process.It is expected that vessel turn-around times at the facility will ultimately become up to 25% faster than at present due to the new cranes.
The new ROC T35M combines the straightforward design concept of, mining equipment manufacturer, Atlas Copco’s former CM line with the well-tested features of the ROC family, in a new modular design developed for the next generation of Atlas Copco’s surface crawler drill rigs. This design is focused on productivity, cost-efficiency and hole quality.The ROC T35M is a fuel efficient drill rig equipped with a highly productive rock drill. The COP 1840 rock drill with 18 kW drilling power provides a high penetration rate. It gives more drilling power for less input energy, resulting in less fuel consumption. The hydraulic based control system, COP Logic, adjusts the feed speed, feed pressure and impact pressure in real time according to the rock condition. Continuous feeding by use of cylinder and rope, results in constant contact of the bit to the rock and leads to optimum transfer of the impact power.Katsuyuki Yamada, Product Manager at Atlas Copco SDE: “The ROC T35M offers high productivity, thanks to its use of the Atlas Copco COP 1840 rock drill, with hydraulic based COP Logic control system that optimises the drilling according to the need.”Bo-Göran Johansson, Vice President, Marketing, at Atlas Copco SDE adds: “Every contractor dreams of higher penetration rates, straighter holes and better accessory life. The ROC T35M drill rig employs a cylinder-driven aluminium feed system that fulfils this dream by providing optimal penetration rates and drill steel life. Its rod handling system, with a streamlined number of parts, ensures easy adjustment and maintenance. The well proven aluminium feed profile is sturdy and highly resistant to bending.”The ROC T35M is built of modules and parts common to the Atlas Copco surface crawler portfolio. This makes training easy and reduces the spare parts inventory of contractors. Maintenance is aided by all around access to service points and good hose management with bulk heads. The maintenance-friendly design together with ROC Care and COP Care service agreements mean fewer breakdowns, increased availability and reduced service costs.
