Metso has been awarded a contract for the design, supply and installation of a railroad car dumper system for CSX Transportation in the USA. The new Twin Cage Tandem Rotary Car Dumper System will be used for the unloading of coal from railroad cars at the CSX Curtis Bay Export Terminal, located in Baltimore, Maryland. The dumper system is expected to be operational in October 2021.
The delivery includes two complete Dumper Barrel assemblies, a complete Hopper System with Grizzlies, a Unit Train Positioner Operation, and installation. The order has been booked in Metso’s 2020 Q2 orders received.
Thanks to its innovative design, the new dumper system to be delivered to CSX will not only allow for the rotary dumping of loaded railroad cars but also the unloading of bottom dump cars. Overall efficiency of the dumping operation will be improved via the use of NolanTM Car movers that are mounted on the dumper barrels to spot the loaded cars as well as eject the empty cars.
