Coal Fuel Handling
Coal fuel handling facilities are a critical link between coal suppliers and the bunker system at each electric power-generating station. Reliability, flexibility and efficiency are required in each coal yard design and must be accomplished without neglecting safe working conditions and environmental compliance.
Roberts & Schaefer has extensive experience in the design, engineering, procurement, construction, construction management, maintenance and operation of bulk material handling systems. Our engineers have thorough experience in developing systems that receive, convey, and process coal from rail, barge or truck supply points to storage, reclaim, or bunker feed systems. For over a century, the power industry has relied on our technical expertise and engineering acumen gained from serving the worldwide coal industry.
Whether you’re designing a new power plant to burn coal or coal blends, or retrofitting an existing power plant to handle coal blends, ask our experts. We’ll help you ensure that the three main functions of a coal handling system—unloading, stockout and reclaim—are designed to meet your needs.
