2018-5-25  In the South African coal mining industry, conveyor belts are used to transport coal to a number of power stations in the Mpumalanga area as a number of them are built next to the coal mines. The coal-fired power plants are designed with a coal mine next to them for the ease of supplying coal in a system called a ’tied-colliery’ contract. These are long-term contracts meant to ensure coal supply security to the power stations. However, road transport is used to supplement coal supply to the power stations which are already being supplied via conveyor belts as the respective mines
