Flyingbelt – Barroso, Brazil

The new Flyingbelt for a cement plant in southeastern Brazil moves material especially quickly and in an environmentally friendly way. The system transports about 1,500 tons of limestone per hour from the quarry to the factory – an output that would require over 40 trucks in that same time. Utilization of this technology significantly reduces road traffic while sparing the environment. The world’s longest aerial belt conveyor utilizes a single 14.4 kilometer-long rubber belt as well as 60,000 meters of rope and 25,000 rollers. The customer for this approx. 25 million euro project is the big Swiss-French concern LafargeHolcim, leader in the building materials industry.
