The first fly-ash train of Railway Equipment Company departed for Xiong’an New Area in Hebei Province on November 22, opening a new corridor for transporting important construction supplies from Ningxia and western Inner Mongolia to Xiong’an.
The train has 38 carriages in four types, loaded with 1,872 tons of fly ash in 72 open containers measuring 20 feet. The maiden transport task via the company’s self-owned railway line is of landmark importance as coal solid waste realized recycling within China Energy’s integrated system.
To ensure smooth transportation of fly ash, Railway Equipment Company maintained close coordination with fly ash producers, container providers and sales clients to make meticulous plans and guidelines for the transportation and sales of fly ash. While facilitating successful launch of the dedicated train, it made efforts to ensure great amounts of fly ash can hit the Hebei market before peak sales season, so as to provide robust support for the construction of Xiong’an. Currently, the planning and design of fly ash warehouses and intensive processing base are underway.
