FlyingBelt Adrianopolis POMA
Brazil – Adrianópolis – 2020

Adrianópolis FlyingBelt®

Each day, limestone was transported to the cement plant of Secil Supremo Cimentos by hundreds of trucks, with a huge environmental impact: gas emissions, damage to the road, material spills. The loads are now carried via a FlyingBelt®, a transport solution with a very low environmental impact that is perfectly adapted to topographic constraints.

More about

The project

In Brazil, Supremo Secil Cimentos, one of the largest cement manufacturers in the country, entrusted the design and installation of an impressive FlyingBelt® on its site in Adrianópolis, five hours from São Paulo, to AGUDIO, the Group's material transport expert.
The company now benefits from an environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to the hundreds of trucks a day required to transport 720 tonnes of limestone from the quarry to the cement plant every hour. Despite significant topographic constraints, the FlyingBelt® crosses the valley over a distance of more than 1,700 metres and stands out for its record span of 850 metres, thereby outperforming all types of FlyingBelt® combined. After Barroso, constructed in 2016, this is the second FlyingBelt® installation in a cement plant in Brazil.

Open year round, this is the second FlyingBelt® installation in a cement plant in Brazil, after Barroso in 2016.
