Poing, Germany – RWE Power now exclusively relies on Rema Tip Top for the repair and maintenance of the steel cord conveyor belts in their conveyor systems, which transport millions of tons of coal and excavation material from the open-pit mining sites in the Rhenish lignite mining area every year. The service contract has a term of ten years. It comprises on-site support for the open-pit mining operations and will be carried out by 120 locally employed service staff, who will be quickly available 24/7 from their conveniently located branch office in Elsdorf-Desdorf. Rema Tip Top, a global system provider of services and products for conveyor and processing technology, has won the contract for the exclusive vulcanization of the conveyor systems for the transport of brown coal and excavation material at the open-pit mining sites of Inden, Hambach, and Garzweiler.  The service team at Rema Tip Top focuses on the entire material transport: the conveyor belts on the conveyor lines and on large equipment (bucket wheel excavator and stacker) will be serviced, repaired, and renewed. The idea of providing all of the services for vulcanization in order to simplify procedures had already been introduced in 2014. At that time, several different service providers were responsible for the numerous services. Rema Tip Top was able to win the corresponding tender for a limited period through 2017. With the now signed follow-up contract, RWE Power has shown their approval of the services rprovided during that period. 

The smooth and trouble-free operation of the conveyor systems is one of the most important prerequisites for reliable power generation and processing of the extracted brown coal – and thus also for the supply of energy for the region. If a conveyor belt fails, the entire operation quickly comes to a halt. It is therefore crucial to recognize wear and tear as early as possible before a failure occurs, in order to be able to schedule maintenance periods in a targeted manner. If any damage suddenly occurs, it needs to be repaired as soon as possible.
