EGAT’s Mae Moh mine in northern Thailand has ordered three Semi-Mobile Sizing Stations and a 400t Transporter from MMD, which are currently under construction.

The mine produces 40,000t of coal per day and feeds the neighbouring Mae Moh Power Station. Mae Moh is one of the largest coal-fired plant in South East Asia with a current generating capacity of 2,400MW.

The order was placed on MMD to help meet the mine’s expansion goals. The contract between MMD and phase 8 operators Sahakol Equipment, was signed on 21 November 2016.

MMD’s manufacturing commitment is being handled by several facilities worldwide, with parts coming from the UK, South Africa, China, India and Thailand.

Each Semi-Mobile station features twin truck bridges, a D9 Feeder and a 1250 Series Sizer, capable of processing overburden at a rate of 6,500tph. The new units are due to be commissioned in November 2017.
