District heating tunnel, Copenhagen, Danmark

The muck moving system consists of horizontally movable frames for moving two buckets at a time and lifting beams for lifting out the buckets.

The transverse movement is made with the aid of hydraulic cylinders while the frames run on flanged wheels mounted on re-greasable roller bearings. The overlapping filling aids mean that the system can work during the moving process without stopping the conveyor belt
