US-based Metso has signed an agreement with Westshore Terminals to supply the latter with railcar dumper technology.

According to the agreement, Metso will provide three new 240kip wire rope positioners, and new rotary and replacement rotary railcar dumpers, both to include all new hoppers, feeders and gates.

The contract requires Metso to design, supply, install and commission all equipment for Westshore, which operates a coal storage and loading terminal located at Roberts Bank, British Columbia, Canada.

Based on the Gemini positioner system with positioners on both the exit and entrance ends of the dumper, the technology can automatically index trains with mid-train locomotives, handling 64 cars an hour.

The delivery is expected to be completed by next year.
