“The Dutch back to higher level for World Championship in Estonia”
The Dutch National Ice Hockey Team ended as First Runner Up just behind China as result of the World Championship in Croatia in April this year.
The next World Championship will be held in Tallinn, Estonia from 23th up to and including 29th April 2023. The Dutch team will be playing against Japan, Ukraine, Estonia, China and Serbia. The Dutch team returns to the higher level in which they already were before the Corona pandemic. The team coached by Doug Mason won three out of the four games in Zagreb. Only the Olympic participant China was too strong for the Dutch team.
“Everything is possible when a national team gets the support they need”
As Director of T-REX Rubber Borrit Boshart is happy to sponsor the “Dutch Lions” again. “Ice hockey in Holland deserves support as well, because I am convinced that everything is possible when a national team gets the support they need”.
Borrit is a huge ice hockey fan, when he is not on the road with his best friend to attend a game in Germany or anywhere else, he spends a big part of his free time to play ice hockey himself in Enschede and Nijmegen.
The Dutch National Ice Hockey Team played their last official international game in Kazakhstan in February 2020 during the Olympic Pre-Qualification Round. So it has been a while they played. In the past two years the World Championship have been cancelled by the international ice hockey federation IIHF due to the corona pandemic. The Dutch team will play the World Championship in Division II Group A in end of April 2022in Zagreb, Croatia.
Borrit Boshart looks forward to the return of international ice hockey. “It can be a great tournament for the Netherlands and we as T-Rex Rubber are proud that we can contribute to this. I also definitely intend to go to Zagreb and support the team.”
The Dutch Ice Hockey Association interviewed Borrit, read the entire interview on their website (in Dutch only):
Summary of Problem Frequent stoppages of the conveyor belt for unknown reasons when running in dryer conditions without a counter weight.
Summary of Solution Tru-Trac recommended a complete conveyor survey and had mine personnel describe the issues. After thorough analysis, Tru-Trac recommended installing two 2400 mm Dual Return trackers.
Summary of Results Following Tru-Trac’s improvements, the conveyor belt now remains centered when running without a load. As a result, on-site staff can now use the conveyor belt at all times and production in the copper mine has increased.
