Sandvik Construction supply drilling equipment and tools for Brazilian hydroelectric plant

As part of its energy from renewable sources strategy, the Brazilian government is planning to build 10 hydroelectric power stations that will possess a combined generating capacity of close to 4,000 Mega Watts.
As part of its energy from renewable sources strategy, the Brazilian government is planning to build 10 hydroelectric power stations that will possess a combined generating capacity of close to 4,000 Mega Watts. The largest of these, Teles Pires, is located near the town of Paranaita, and when fully operational in 2015 will possess a total generating capacity of 1,820 MW. The hydroelectric project has seen Sandvik Construction in Brazil play a key role in ensuring the Teles Pires deadline is met through the supply of a large variety of rock tools, drilling equipment, all backed by Sandvik’s world leading aftermarket customer care.

The Teles Pires Hydropower plant has been built on Teles Pires River, a 1,370 km long water course in the Mato Grosso State. When fully operational it will generate around 1,820 MW, and will be the largest hydroelectric plant of the ambitious Teles Pires Complex. The combined complex is located between Paranaíta in Mato Grosso State, and Jacareacanga in the Pará State, all located inside the Seven Fall Waterfall area. The entire Teles Pires hydropower complex consists of the São Manoel Hydropower, Sinop Hydropower and Teles Pires Hydropower. Four further smaller power plants will also be installed on the Parnaiba River, located on the border between the north eastern states of Piaui and Maranhao, while another will be situated on the Sao Francisco River situated between the Bahia and Pernambuco states.

The two managing concerns for this strategically vital project are Empresa de Pesquisa Energética (EPE), which is the agency of the Brazilians Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME), and Neoenergia Investimentos S/A (Neoinvest). The latter is a company controlled by pension funds linked to the Brazilian state-owned Bank of Brazil (Banco do Brazil), and the Welfare Fund for Bank of Brazil's staff (Previ), as well as by the Spanish group Iberdrola. Neoinvest has thus played the central role in ensuring that the project has been suitably financed.

Due to the prominence of the project, and the strategic role it will play in securing Brazil’s current and future energy requirements, it was no surprise that some of Brazil’s leading specialist construction and civil engineering companies combined to work on the scheme. These major companies included such established names as Odebrecht Infraestrutura, who were responsible for the construction of the hydropower facility, and Intertechne Consultores Associados S/C Ltda. Additionally Empresa de Pesquisa Energética (EPE), Neoenergia Investimentos S/A (Neoinvest), Neoenergia, Eletrobrás, Eletrosul, Eletrobrás Furnas, and Odebrecht Energia all played significant roles in the construction of the Teles Pires hydroelectric project.

Playing a vital role from the very beginning of the project has been Sandvik Construction Brazil, who first became involved towards the end of 2011 when building work commenced. Sandvik’s involvement stems from the winning of the contract to supply rock tools for surface and underground drilling. This is hardly surprising as Sandvik provides the world’s widest range of tools and accessories for exploration, rock drilling, raise boring, coal and mineral cutting, tunneling, trenching, road grading and cold planing. Furthermore, quality is imbued into the equipment as Sandvik is a world leader in steel, hard-materials technology and tool design. Thus Sandvik products are renowned for quality, high performance and the lowest cost per unit of work performed.

The requirement for rock tools of the highest caliber cannot be over stated due to the hard wearing nature of the granite material that was encountered, as well as the isolated geographic position, which necessitated the use of highly reliable tools. Furthermore, as the scheme is divided into 2 parts - Left Border and Right Border – two different approaches were required both requiring their own specialist equipment.

The Left Border of the scheme has seen 2,500,000m3 of material excavated, and such an enormous quantity of material thus required a large number of specialized machinery to be utilized, with the rock blasting alone having seen 5 x Pneumatics Drill Rigs, 2 x Hydraulics Drill Rigs, and a Jumbo Sandvik Axera T08 used. Getting the choice of the range of rock tools right used in this drilling was essential, as this part of the scheme possessed an added complexity as the river would be deviated from its course, with three 330 meter long tunnels totaling 220,000m3 being excavated. On the corresponding Right Border a staggering 4,500,000m3 of material has been excavated, with the materials being used to provide rock for barrage construction. The equipment used to help excavate the material on this part of the scheme used 5 x Pneumatics Drill Rigs, 8 x Hydraulics Drill Rigs and 5 x Hydraulic Drill Rigs DX 680.

In addition to drilling equipment supplied by Sandvik (that was also used in a nearby project), a great deal of specialist rock drilling tools were specifically deployed. To this end Sandvik supplied tools, shank adaptors, couplings, rods as well drill bits for the hydraulic and pneumatic drilling equipment. These tools used are particularly worthy of note due to the key part they played in the successful completion of the project.
The New Sandvik Tough MF rods have been specifically developed for surface bench drilling, in order to provide users that extra edge. With metallurgical properties varied carefully to match the load on different zones of the rod, they possess no weak points, resulting in a rigid, long-lasting and highly productive drill string. The Sandvik Alpha tools have been developed due to the problems associated with persistent tool failure in drifting and tunneling. As these problems may seriously affect productivity the Sandvik Alpha counters these problems as it is a new drill string, designed to take the high energy output and very high penetration rates of modern hydraulic rock drills. Thus, both sets of tools were perfect for the difficult conditions encountered on the Teles Pires scheme.

Sandvik’s role was not limited to purely supplying rock tools, as parts, aftermarket and logistical support were also key strategic areas of Sandvik’s involvement. Based on expected usage, and drawing on its world leading experience of such projects, Sandvik put together consignments of rock tools. This was done to ensure that productivity would not be affected by any unforeseen problems with production, as the logistical situation was incredibly difficult. This is due to the physical location of the site making reaching an arduous task, as it is located in the heart of the Amazon Jungle, with poor roads at the best of times that became virtually non-existent during the rainy season. Furthermore, and in order to ensure that the very best results were achieved from the rock tools utilized, a monthly visit from Sandvik specialists to help ensure that the very best solutions were used was organized. This proved especially beneficial due to the difficult nature of the granite encountered, and thus unforeseen difficulties encountered.

The Teles Pires hydro-electric scheme has been a vast undertaking; located in some of the world’s most demanding terrain, requiring the excavation of some of the hardest wearing rock, it has been a major test of both man and machinery. Sandvik tools and drilling equipment have proven their worth yet again, and have contributed to the project being completed on time, and will ensure that the hydro-electric scheme becomes fully operational in 2015.

Excavation accuracy, optimized performance and low-risk operation Sandvik DTi Promoting continuous improvement in tunneling

In 2008, Sandvik launched new intelligent tunneling jumbos, the Sandvik DTi series, to the first market areas. Ever since, the series has been a great success, fast becoming the industry-leader in optimized performance, outstanding excavation accuracy and low-risk operation in almost every corner of the world.
In 2008, Sandvik launched new intelligent tunneling jumbos, the Sandvik DTi series, to the first market areas. Ever since, the series has been a great success, fast becoming the industry-leader in optimized performance, outstanding excavation accuracy and low-risk operation in almost every corner of the world.

Despite the successful receipt among the tunneling sites, further development of the DTi series is continuously on-going. Since the launch, the fruits of that work have brought into the machines additional practical features for accurate and fast tunneling such as WLAN remote access, iBOLT systematic bolting and total station navigation. Aspects of work site safety have been also carefully considered in the Sandvik DTi series, and the latest news include, among others, an Access Detection System that stops feed and rotation if a person is entering the working area of the booms. Other recently introduced features are high frequency RD5 series rock drills for optimized performance, and TIER4 engines.

Access detection decreases risks caused by human errors
The new Access Detection System enhances safe excavation by decreasing risks caused by human actions and errors. The system includes detection sensors on the sides of the jumbo. If a person is recognized in the detection field, boom operations – rotation and feed - will automatically be stopped. In other words, access detection prevents anyone from entering the working area of the booms while they are in operation. If boom operation is automatically stopped, the system must be de-activated with a separate reset by the operator before drilling is released.
In addition to the Access Detection System, the DTi jumbos also feature a manual prevention switch for boom and drilling movements. Safety needs have been considered in the mechanical structure of the jumbo as well, in the form of yellow marking in all access ways, steps, ladders and handles. In addition, the spiral hoses are made of fire-resistant material. All these features greatly improve the work site safety.

RD5 rock drills for optimized performance
Sandvik DTi series jumbos are equipped with new, advanced Sandvik RD5 series high frequency rock drills. The RD5 series features low profile height and a patented stabilizer with an intelligent control system that dampens harmful shockwaves. The simple body structure of the drills along with their modular construction and visual wear indicators guarantee ease of use and maintenance. Built to last, the robust and reliable drills feature only few pressurized seams between functional modules.
With 15 - 20 percent higher penetration rates and significantly longer tool life compared to HLX5*, the robust and reliable RD5 series rock drills offer carefully optimized, cost-effective performance.

Advanced supporting features
The DTi series features a TRH rod handling system, offering an ergonomic and mechanized way of extension rod handling. With its low weight, compact, durable and protected structure and cabin control, it meets the specific needs of any tunneling works. In addition to this, a centralizing rod retainer SCR holds extension rods in place during coupling and uncoupling. It also keeps the rod centralized while clamping.

Intelligent tunneling for outstanding accuracy
The computer-controlled Sandvik DTi series jumbos are famous for their outstanding accuracy. They come in five different models for excavation of 12 – 231 m2 cross sections, including face drilling, bolt hole drilling and long-hole drilling.

The DTi jumbos are designed for automatic use which translates into highest process repeatability and best possible excavation predictability. The user-friendly iDATA control system features full round drilling automatics, one hole drilling automatics and automatic boom positioning according to drill plan. The automatic functions also include boom self-collision detection and hole length control.

The further intelligence features in the DTi jumbos include data collection of production and process information such as round data, cumulative production data and drilling parameters logging that, in turn, help production logistics planning, scheduled maintenance and productivity improvement.

The DTi rigs are equipped with Sandvik iSURE® tunnel excavation management tool. This combination ensures optimized blasting as per plan, supplying better pull-out, decreased need for scaling, increased rock loadability and smoother collaring in the following round.

* 40 % longer tool life for the shank and 17 % for the bits compared with HLX 5 in test conditions.

Sandvik Mining in South Africa is proud to announce that it has been selected by Royal Bafokeng Platinum for its new flagship platinum project, Styldrift, as the key supplier of underground production trackless equipment. Phase 1 of the project generated a single order in the last week of December 2012 for 83 machines comprising mostly of low profile 8 ton LH208 LHDs, DD210-L drill rigs and the only fully mechanised roofbolter, DS210L-M.

Delivery of the machines will take place during 2014 but various other projects like the related apprenticeship training programme, community “Up-skill” programme and the current Sandvik sponsored community day care project in the Boshoek area will benefit much sooner.

Royal Bafokeng Platinum has tasked a contractor to do the Development work leading to the declines. The contractor has also been using the Sandvik DD210L drill rig to perform the Development. Sandvik would like to acknowledge the early commitment shown by Royal Bafokeng Platinum which we know will reap rewards for all stakeholders, including the local communities. Both parties believe that this is the beginning of a “valuable partnership." and not just the supply of mining equipment.

Brazil on the road to success with a Sandvik mobile train

Sandvik proves once again to be a success in Brazil with the installation of a Sandvik train of mobile crushers and screens

Sandvik proves once again to be a success in Brazil with the installation of a Sandvik train of mobile crushers and screens

In the city of Irauçuba, in the Ceará state close to the equator in the northeast of Brazil, the Sandvik QA450 triple deck screener, QH330 cone crusher and QJ340 jaw crusher are taking an active role in the renovation works on the BR-222 motorway, which joins the cities of Fortaleza and Sobral. Baltt Empreiteira Transportes e Terraplenagem Ltda. and the company CAMTER, which is hiring the equipment from Baltt, are pioneers of this crusher and screener set up in the biggest country in South America.

Founder and Managing Director, Rogerio Baltt, spotted a niche in the market back in 1980 and started up his own transport company in the Itajaí valley region, Santa Catarina. This same entrepreneurial vision took him to acquire a quarry in 2005, in a period where the country was fast consolidating its position as one of the second biggest emerging world economies after China. The success of his business saw his fleet grow from a single used lorry, to more than thirty lorries as well as quarry and road construction equipment, helping to boost the economy of the southern region of Brazil along the way.

Among the main reasons for the acquisition of the three Sandvik machines are their productivity, mobility and design. The crushers and screener are track mounted and hydraulically driven, which allows them to work at the deposits along the BR-222 motorway. The units can be quickly relocated to a new area of the project as required, which makes them ideal not only for their flexibility but also for the cost efficiency of their quick set up. With the operator’s safety as priority, Sandvik units are designed and manufactured to all CE certification and safety standards ensuring ease of operation as well as peace of mind.

The material being processed is granite. The blasted 600 mm material is first processed by the Sandvik QJ340 jaw crusher. The high crushing speed of its 1250 x 750 jaw, together with its reverse crushing action function, permits a continuous flow of product into the second machine on the train: the Sandvik QH330 cone crusher. At a 28 mm CSS position, the material is further reduced from 100 to 25 mm. The material processed by the three foot Sandvik CH430 cone crusher fitted on the mobile unit, is of excellent shape and quality, thanks to the CSC (cubical shaped crushing) technique developed by Sandvik. Finally, the QA450 triple deck doublescreen, with a screening surface equivalent to a 20’ x 5’ area (6 x 1.5 m), produces -6, 6-12, 12-19 and +19 mm final products at a rate of 160 mtph (176 stph). The length and design of the four conveyors, allows a stockpiling capacity of over 5 metres and the possibility for it to be used in a recirculation mode with the QH330, with a potential to augment the quality of the final product even more.

Rogerio Baltt is clearly impressed with this latest Sandvik acquisition from the Santa Catarina dealer, Jok´s Equipamentos para Mineração Ltda: “we are extremely pleased with this new Sandvik purchase. The machines are well built, easy to set up and operate, which in this remote area, is invaluable”. With the back up of Sandvik’s cutting edge technology and first class global after sales support, this set up is destined to be a hit.
