High productivity under severe conditions

23 November 2012

This hydroelectric mega project is a complex on the Xingu River in the State of Pará, Brazil. The planned installed capacity of the dam is 11,233 MW. The work on Belo Monte began in 2010 and the plant is schedule to become operational in late 2014.

IN OPERATION ALREADY, at the forefront of the construction of the Brazilian hydroelectric power plant, are 14 Dynapac tamping compactors CT300. The last fleet was delivered in October 2012, and the volume is expected to grow when delivering 7 more units in the beginning of 2013.

The Dynapac CT300 was tested thoroughly and proved itself to be very efficient as evaluated the Belo Monte Consortium, hired by Norte Energia, responsible for the execution of the work.

“Therefore there was the decision to complete the fleet of earthmoving equipment with the CT300, in order to increase productivity and quality of the jobs”, said Carlos Santos, responsible by Dynapac product application. He explains that they became interested in the Dynapac tamping compactor in the middle of last year, when Dynapac agreed to perform tests on the jobsite.

With the positive results of the tests at the end of 2011, the first orders were settled between Protec, the Dynapac dealer in the State of Pará and the Belo Monte Consortium.

“A number of factors contribute to the choice of the Dynapac equipment instead of competitors: the shape of the pads, operational mass and high speed compaction. Such features generate enormous productivity, able to replace the job of up to four vibratory rollers”, said Paulo Bruno, Atlas Copco Product Manager, RCE Division.
