DENJEAN Group, a family owned company, is a major actor in South-West of France in transport, logistic and rough material production businesses. The Group is reinforcing today the efficiency of its production in Ariège Region, on its Saverdun pit. The gravels extraction process will be carried out now thanks to the new 140t class dragline: a SENNEBOGEN 6140HD duty-cycle crane.
Few weeks ago SYGMAT, exclusive sales and service partner for SENNEBOGEN in France, took care about the delivery, set-up, and start of production of the brand news 6140HD which ensure today the gravels production for DENJEAN Group in Saverdun.The technical teams immediately assembled the 140 t capacity duty-cycle crane, as well as the dragline bucket manufactured by French company IEV. Then came time for a global safety commissioning.
As soon as the machine has be equipped, operators were trained by SYGMAT and throwed the first buckets into the gravels pit. Thanks to its two 350kN free-fall winches, the machine pulls a 7 CuYd (5,4 m3) bucket, fitted with extra rippers on its bottom.
With a boom length of 24.3 m (max. length 63.5 m) and a digging depth of up to 17 m, the 6140 E guarantees a permanent material supply with an optimised production process. The powerful 563 kW diesel engine, as the most powerful engine variant, not only provides sufficient reserves of power in every application, it also meets the high requirements of emission stage IV.
The SENNEBOGEN duty cycle crane series from 13.5 t to 300 t sets itself apart with the robust design of each and every machine component, such as the uppercarriage, undercarriage, slewing ring, winches, and booms. he new wide-track undercarriage with a selectable track width between 4.5 m and 5.6 m ensures maximum stability of the machine - a good 20 % more than similar machines on the market, which illustrates the added stability.
Daniel PIOVESAN, Production Sites Manager for DENJEAN Granulats, can conclude after a few days in production that the efficiency is in line with the expectations: "Despite the very hard geological layers in this part of Ariège Région, we manage to fill-in the buckets perfectly!"
