Duitslandreis – 2019

Hey Everyone, On the 14/15th of February there will be a two day excursion to Germany for all 1st year TEL students. On the first day we will leave Delft from the Aula at 7am and head to our destination which will be RWE and their lignite mine. For the evening we will be staying the night in Köln where we will head out for some food and there will be a chance to have a ‘sensible’ amount of fun before getting an ‘early’ night ready for the next day. On the second day we will head to Lunen and visit one of the sites where ESI Eurosilo have a large silo installation. We estimate to arrive back in Delft at 6pm on the Friday evening. The trip is mostly funded by the department and Transportkunde Pandora, however in order for us to offer a more enjoyable trip each student is also required to contribute €35. This contribution makes the trip all-inclusive and so you won’t have any expenses after that. All planned activities and food/drink are covered in the price. If you wish to attend, please fill out the form underneath before the 1st of February. Places are limited, so make sure you register your attendance ASAP. We hope to see you all there. PANDORA Loading…

Excursion EMO- Port of Rotterdam

The first excursion of the New Year took place at the Port of Rotterdam, where we visited bulk handling specialist EMO. EMO has one of the largest bulk handling terminals in Europe, with their main business being in the intermediate storage and onwards distribution of coal and iron ore derivatives.  The site at EMO demonstrates an impressive setup, with a large number of bulk unloader cranes and stacker-reclaimers. However perhaps the most staggering part about the onsite technology is that the majority of the operational systems are almost entirely automatic, putting EMO on the cutting edge of the industry. After arriving on site, the afternoon began with an informative talk about the current setup of the company, its beginnings and most importantly, its plans to adapt to the transitioning demands of the energy sector. After which, we embarked on a tour of the site, getting a first-hand view of the vast operations in action, the scale of the equipment and the size of the storage stacks are quite simply phenomenal. After a swift visit to the control room where all the automated equipment is supervised, we returned to head office with a new outlook on the bulk industry. Following an end note of appreciation from Pandora and the students to thank the team at EMO for hosting us, we then set off on the return to Delft. Thankfully, the fun was not quite over as the TEL department New Year’s borrel was just kicking off at the 3mE, giving a great opportunity to reflect on an eye-opening excursion and a great start to 2019.
