Sönmez Çimento – Turkey

Sönmez Çimento is the first cement plant which founded withinthe free zones in Turkey. Thanks to the plant’s closeness to theharbor, it is proved that vessels are loaded very fast.In April 2016 Bedeschi, awarded by Sönmez Çimento, a contractto realize a clinker and cement export terminal. 

The integrated cement plant is founded in Adana Yumurtalık TAYSEP Free Zone (Turkey), on an advantageous area becauseof its closeness to land and sea transportation and raw materialsources. The shiploader, slewing, luffing and travelling type,equipped with a telescopic chute, will be installed in thiscement plant’s port terminal.

The slewing shiploader will perform efficient loading underheavy duty conditions for vessel up to 55.000 DW, beam 32.2.The nominal loading capacity of the machine is of 1.000 TPHwith peak flow rate of 1.100 TPH.The equipment is fully in conformity with the CurrentEnvironmental Legislation with high technology de-dustingsystems such as filters, installed on board to reduce the dustpollution caused by material flow between subsequent beltconveyors. The plant protects its environmentalist features withusing alternative fuels and renewable energy sources.

Moreover, the belt conveyor installed on the shiploader wasparticularly designed, in order to reduce as much as possible thebelt speed, the belt inclination and type.All these improvements and others have been applied in orderto avoid any kind of spillage of conveyed material (clinker andcement) and to reduce dust generation at each belt conveyortransfer point.
