New Argentine frac sand plant selects Superior
(Posted on 12/10/20)
Superior Industries, Inc., a global manufacturer and supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has been selected as the material handling supplier for NRG Argentina’s (NRG) new frac sand plant in Río Negro, Argentina. Industrial Accessories Company (IAC), NRG’s EPC contractor for the project, has a long history of successfully partnering with Superior Industries on several frac sand projects.
“During North America’s fracking boom in the 2010s, Superior quickly became the preferred manufacturer of conveyors for unloading, transferring and stockpiling frac sand,” says Roland Duer, the conveyor manufacturer’s manager of business development throughout Latin America. “Those customers appreciate high-quality products, dedicated aftermarket support and our uniquely integrated manufacturing, which uses our very own idlers, pulleys and accessories in addition to the conveyor structure we design and build.”
At the writing of this release, more than 750-meters of conveyors were en route to NRG’s new frac sand plant. Highlights include a 56-meter TeleStacker Conveyor. These automated radial telescopic stacking conveyors are capable of building extreme volume stockpiles in excess of 302,000 metric tons. Additionally, NRG will utilize a pair of portable RazerTail Truck Unloaders to transfer frac sand from trucks. Other conveyors will be installed throughout the dry plant creating a quiet, environmentally-friendly material handling operation.
“Having Superior as a supplier is a clear example of the importance for NRG to incorporate good technologies and best practices that take care of the environment and, at the same time, offer solutions to the customers,” said César Güercio, CEO of NRG Argentina S.A.
Superior says it is proud its conveying equipment will be an active participant in Argentina’s effort to achieve energy independence.
From Rock Face to Load Out, Superior Industries engineers and manufactures ground-breaking bulk material processing and handling equipment and cutting-edge components. From its headquarters in Morris, Minnesota, USA, the manufacturer supplies bulk crushing, screening, washing and conveying systems plus all related parts and services for industries like aggregates and mining. In addition to its home plant, Superior operates from three additional U.S. facilities, plus international factories in Canada, Brazil and China.
