The machinery is designed to pack 20kg and 10kg bags and is capable of packing up to 16 bags of coal per minute, Online Coal managing director Ian Mercer said.

“I am thrilled with his new packaging machinery,” he said.

“When we decided to venture into the coal market, we were absolutely certain that RM Group would supply a packaging line that would deliver on performance and reliability.

“We were confident that Rm Group could supply to spec following successful installations in the past.

“All machinery was delivered on time and installations were complete within a matter of weeks.”

The line was made to pack premium coal for online coals customers.

The newly installed automated system will produce coal to meet customer demands over the winter months, Mercer said.
