In accordance with the decision taken by Sönmez Holding, Kutlucan Holding and Türkün Holding, an integrated cement plant has been founded in Adana Yumurtalik TAYSEP Free Zone, under the name ‘Sönmez Çimento’. It is the first cement plant which as been allowed to be built in Turkey’s free zones.
The plant’s close proximity to the harbour means that vessels can be loaded quickly. In April 2016, Bedeschi was awarded a contract to build a clinker and cement export terminal for the site. A slewing, luffing and travelling shiploader, equipped with a telescopic chute, will be installed at the plant’s port terminal. The slewing shiploader will perform efficient loading under heavy-duty conditions for vessels up to 55 000 DWT, beam 32.2. The nominal loading capacity of the machine is 1000 tph, with a peak flow rate of 1100 tph.
The equipment is in full conformity with current environmental legislation, and includes high technology dedusting systems, such as filters, installed on board to reduce the dust pollution caused by material flow between subsequent conveyors. The plant protects will remain environmentally friendly through the use of alternative fuels and renewable energy sources. The belt conveyor installed on the shiploader was partially designed to reduce the belt speed, belt inclination, and type as much as possible. These improvements will help to avoid spillages and reduce dust generation at each belt conveyor transport point.
