Floating belt conveyors type SWO
Our floating belt conveyors type SWO (closed catamaran) is developed and patented by us.
They consist of self-floating conveyors with open-plan lengthwise pontoons.
The conveyor belt runs in the middle of both pontoons.
The lengthwise pontoons are also used as gangways with a width of 800 mm with wide footbridges from one floating belt conveyor to the next by stairs (no ladders).
Due to the flat design with a low centre of mass, the floating belt conveyors type SWO has a huge floating stability and low susceptibility to wind.
The coupling of the conveyors is done by a cardan joint and free of torque moment.
The angle movement between two floating belt conveyors and between the floating dredger and the first floating belt conveyor is ± 100 degrees measured from the longitudinal axle.
The floating belt conveyors type SWO are available in following lengths:
22 m, 28 m, 34 m, 40 m, 46 m, 52 m
