Cooperation with ČD Cargo: Stationary unloading machine in operation

On the 16th of April 2018, together with ČD Cargo, we officially implemented the new brown coal logistics system in Powerplant Chvaletice in Eastern Bohem (Czech Republic). It has been agreed with the owner of the Chvaletice power plant – Sev.en EC that the coal unloading will be carried out by the state-owned railway company ČD Cargo.

This further stationary unloading machine from Innofreight allows a payload increase of 400 t brown coal per block train – approx. 5.5 million t of brown coal are transported by rail per year.

Just like all other Innofreight unloading machines already in operation, the System in Chvaletice also ensures reliable winter operation, even at very low temperatures, and brings a significant improvement in occupational safety during the unloading process.

We would like to thank all those involved for this outstanding achievement, with a big thank you to ČD Cargo for their excellent support in this project. Together with ČD Cargo and Seven EC we will celebrate the inauguration at the end of June!
