Geo Robson & Co
Davis Derby wins order to supply 18 Pullwire systems to Geo Robson & Co.
Darnal based Geo Robson & Co Ltd have travelled far and wide to secure important contracts in the Middle East.
Working closely with Belgium Design Engineers to design and maufacture a Sugar handling system for Hodeidah, Yemen. The 2.5 million system has over 40 belt and screw conveyors, with the total length of the belt conveyors spanning over 1,200m. The system conveys over 2000 tons of Raw Sugar per day, from the port to the 100,0000 ton warehouse facility.
With the importance of the logistics and the critical design specification, Robson's Mick Mosley is leading from the front in the Project Managers role. Mick has been with the company 27 years and is the company's Sugar System Expert having managed Sugar System Design and Installations wordwide.
"With the complex build, accuracy is key, the team of engineers at Robson are very well experienced in this field, early indications are that an on time delivery and on budget build is expected" stated Mick Mosley adding "Other important factors within the build had to be considered such as the explosive atmospheres by the sugar, with all the conveyors undergoing stringent testing and certification for Explosive atmospheres2 ( ATEX ).
The equipment will be manufactured and pre-assembled at the Robson factory and then shipped to Yemen for installation.
Saudi Arabia is the destination for another Robson Handling System. The £1 million Salt handling system is part of a larger plant build by Korean Engineers, Daelim Industrial Co Ltd.
The system handles rock salt from a lorry unloading facility across a 100m a conveyor to a Tripper Conveyor in the roof space of the warehouse ensuring an even and level storage pile. The design of the conveyors had to meet exacting stsndsrds to ensure the conveyors can perform under the corrosive nature of the salt.
Robson's Project Manager on this build is Brian Jackson one of Robson's most experienced managers with over 41 years with the company. With recent trips to Seoul Korea to discuss the design direct with the designer, Brian is confident of a smooth manufacture and build.
