FOREWORD

This specification summarizes the design and engineering prescriptions for the supply of the Coal
Handling System installed on Coal Power Plant located in the Dominican Republic.
The purposes of coal handling are the followings:

Transfer the Coal from ship to the coal bulk warehouse and boiler bunkers at the same time
Transfer the Coal from the coal bulk warehouse to the boiler bunkers

To optimize the spare parts Vendor shall consider as much as possible the standardization of all
equipment, particularly for motors, reducers, pulleys, coupling, idlers, belt cleaners, etc. also if this
approach can cause the over sizing in the design parameters of some components.
The selection of components has also to be carried taking into consideration reliability, safety and easy
maintenance of the system.

1.1

GENERAL INFORMATION

ships 80000 tons displacement. HandyMax and le Supra Max that download the coal into hoppers
located on dedicated jetty. Unloading facilities have to be designed to accept ships equipped with
unloading boom.
Under the hoppers troughed belt conveyors extract the coal and deliver it to conveyors that provide the
connection with the coal bulk warehouse or directly to the coal bunkers located over the mills.

1.2

MATERIAL TO BE HANDLED

The material to be handled is Thermal coal having characteristics as per specification 3814-YZ-SG000001 Design basis and site conditions.

1.3

AREA CLASSIFICATION

COAL HANDLING DESIGN BASIS

2.1

Coal conveying from ship unloading to bulk warehouse

The coal, transported from boom equipped self unloading ships, is transferred from the jetty to the
power plant by means of belt conveyor chain composed by the following items:

Movable hoppers 00EAA10BR001;


belt conveyors 00EAC10AF001;
pipe conveyors 00EAC11AF001;
belt conveyors 00EAD10AF001 equipped with movable tripper 00EAD10AF002;

The motorized hopper 00EAA10BR001 located on the jetty can be moved along the belt conveyor
00EAC10AF001 match the position of ship unloading boom and allow a correct coal discharge.
In the middle of the hopper will be installed a net necessary to avoid the passage of big lumps.
The size of holes will be determined during the detail engineering. The main purpose of this net is the
protection of the pipe conveyor. In any case max allowed hole dimensions are 200 x 200 mm.
The conveyors 00EAC10AF001 will be equipped with the weighing scale 00EAT10CW001 in order to
verify the real quantity of coal discharged from the ships.
The coal sent to the tripper conveyor 00EAD10AF001, through the pipe conveyors 00EAC11AF001,
reaches the tripper 00EAD10AF002 that provides the coal stacking in the coal bulk warehouse.
The closed coal bulk storage is sized considering the recovery of 30 days of two boilers operation at
rated capacity.
To allow the refilling of boiler bunkers directly with the coal discharged from ships the following items
are installed:
Splitter valve 00EAC12AA101 at the discharge of pipe conveyor 00EAC11AF001;
Diverter valve 00EAC12AA102 downstream the splitter valve 00EAC12AA101;
Weighing scales 00ECT11CW001 & ECT21CW001 installed on belt conveyors
00ECD010AF001 & 00ECD20AF001;
The splitter valve (pneumatic actuators are recommended) 00EAC12AA101, (type will be defined by
vendor and will be subjected to Contractor approval during detailed engineering) will split the coal flow
as per the following:
Delivery of 3000 t/h to the coal yard when its not requested coal in the bunkers
Delivery of up to 1500 t/h to the bunkers (flow rate will be taken within a range that will absorb
the flow rate fluctuations without continuous adjustment of the splitter valve) measured by
weighing scales 00ECT11CW001 & ECT21CW001. Coal exceeding the settled flow rate will be
sent to coal storage

Coal conveying from bulk warehouse to boiler silos

The coal reclaimed from bulk warehouse by means of portal reclaimers 00EAF10AE001 &
00EAF20AE001 will be delivered to the boiler bunkers through a belt conveyor chains composed by the
following items:

Portal reclaimers 00EAF10AE001 & 00EAF20AE001;


Belt conveyors 00ECB10AF001 & 00ECB20AF001;
Belt conveyors 00ECD10AF001 & 00ECD20AF001;
Intermediate hopper 00ECF01 BB001;
Extractor feeders 00ECF10AF001 & 00ECF20AF001;
Coal crushers 00ECF10AJ001 & 00ECF20AJ001;
Belt conveyors 00ECG10AF001 & 00ECG20AF001;
Belt conveyor 00ECH10AF001 equipped with travelling
20ECH10AF001;
Belt conveyor 00ECH20AF001 equipped with travelling
20ECH20AF001.

&

The coal stored in the bulk warehouse will be recovered by the portal reclaimers 00EAF10AE001 &
00EAF20AE001 that discharges it in the belt conveyor 00ECB10AF001 & 00ECB20AF001.
Each conveyor is connected and dedicated to a portal reclaimer. Each portal reclaimer shall be able to
work for all warehouse length. Both reclaimed coal conveyors will be located on the same side of the
warehouse.
In the belt conveyors 00ECB10AF001 & 00ECB20AF001 are installed the weighing scales
00ECT10CW001 & 00ECT20CW001 that provide a feedback to the reclaimer in order to regulate the
reclaiming flow rate of the machine. Weighing accuracy shall be enough to guarantee a correct
reclaiming flow rate from the portal reclaimers.
On conveyors 00ECD10AF001 & 00ECD20AF001 will be installed the devices to clean the coal from
magnetic and non magnetic metal debris.
The buffer hopper 00ECF01BB001, installed downstream conveyors 00ECD10AF001 &
00ECD20AF001 is used as intermediate capacity during the positioning of the bunkers trippers to avoid
the start and stop of the reclaimer.
At the outlet of the hopper will be installed the belt feeders 00ECF10AF001 & 00ECF20AF001 and the
crushers 00ECF10AJ001 & 00ECF20AJ001 used to destroy all possible residual lumps (lumps breaker
will be installed also on the reclaimer chutes) and to reduce the coal size.
On the conveyors 00ECG10AF001 & 00ECG20AF001 are installed the coal sampling system 00ECU10
used to analyze the coal recovered from coal storage. The sampling system shall be located on the
tower 00UEF50.
Belts conveyors 00ECH10AF001 & 00ECH20AF001, located above the boiler bunkers, are equipped
with travelling trippers 10/20ECH10AF001 and 10/20ECH20AF001.
