FLSmidth provides Akçansa Çimento with a safe, efficient, low-dust shipunloader

Dry Bulk,

Akçansa Çimento had been operating a KOVAKO® shipunloader day in, day out for 27 years. When it became time to retire the well-used machine, they returned to FLSmidth for a replacement – and opted for the latest state-of-the-art KOVAKO® road mobile shipunloader.

The facility in Turkey required a highly efficient shipunloader capable of unloading at high capacities with minimal dust. The KOVAKO® K0-1 road mobile shipunloader is designed to fit perfectly with 5000 DWT ships and unloads at rates up to 175 tph. Thanks to the optimised vacuum nozzle unloading technology and fully enclosed, 20 m long pneumatic unloading arm, dust is kept to an absolute minimum while cement is transported from the ships to the silos 113 m away.

The robust design, backed by intensive testing, FEA and kinematic studies, ensures that Akçansa Çimento will get at least another 27 years out of the new pneumatic unloading arm.
