In order to prevent self combustion of (thermal) coal, OVET can compact the coal upon arrival of the shipment. At the storage site a pile is built up in layers with dumpers and wheelloaders which are compacting the core of the pile. The edges are carefully compacted by a vibrating plate. To finish a crust forming agent is applied in order to seal off the coal from wind and rain as much as possible.
