CSX has awarded a contract to Metso for the design, supply and installation of a rail-car dumper system that will be used to unload coal at the Curtis Bay Export Terminal in Baltimore.

The Metso Twin Cage Tandem Rotary Car Dumper System will include two complete dumper barrel assemblies, a complete hopper system with grizzlies, a unit train positioner operation and installation. The system is expected to be operational in October 2021, Metso officials said in a press release.

CSX will use the system for the rotary dumping of loaded rail cars and for the unloading of bottom dump cars. The dumping operation's efficiency will be improved through the use of Nolan™ car movers mounted on the dumper barrels to spot the loaded cars as well as eject the empty cars, Metso officials said.

"We have a long-standing business partnerships with Metso. We selected them for this project because of their technical expertise and for providing the best long-term value for our company," said Larry Gelo, director of equipment design at CSX.
