Heyl & Patterson Inc., a provider of thermal processing and bulk material handling systems, has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with BHJD Mining Engineering and Technology. The company, an equipment procurement and construction (EPC) company based in Beijing, China, specializes in coal preparation plants.
The agreement combines Heyl & Patterson’s engineering and manufacturing skills with BHJD’s sales and marketing expertise in China. Coal preparation plants wash coal and prepare it for transport to power plants and steel mills. An industrial dryer at the end of the process will increase the coal’s heat content and make it a higher-value product. Heyl & Patterson has been an industry leader in coal drying technology since the company was founded in 1887.
Heyl & Patterson president, John Edelman, commented: “This is a fantastic business opportunity with one of the most innovative companies in China. It will give Heyl & Patterson the chance to reach out to a new geographic market and collaborate with a business in one of the world’s fastest growing economies.”
BHJD was established in 2006 and has quickly become a leading provider of engineering design, construction, project management and production operations to the coal and power industries. The company has also completed projects in lignite, kaolinite, non-metallic minerals and non-ferrous metals.
