Sönmez Çimento is the first cement plant which founded within the free zones in Turkey. Thanks to the plant’s closeness to the harbor, it is proved that vessels are loaded very fast. In April 2016 Bedeschi, awarded by Sönmez Çimento, a contract to realize a clinker and cement export terminal.
The integrated cement plant is founded in Adana Yumurtalık TAYSEP Free Zone (Turkey), on an advantageous area because of its closeness to land and sea transportation and raw material sources. The shiploader, slewing, luffing and travelling type, equipped with a telescopic chute, will be installed in this cement plant’s port terminal.
The slewing shiploader will perform efficient loading under heavy duty conditions for vessel up to 55.000 DW, beam 32.2. The nominal loading capacity of the machine is of 1.000 TPH with peak flow rate of 1.100 TPH. The equipment is fully in conformity with the Current Environmental Legislation with high technology de-dusting systems such as filters, installed on board to reduce the dust pollution caused by material flow between subsequent belt conveyors. The plant protects its environmentalist features with using alternative fuels and renewable energy sources.
Moreover, the belt conveyor installed on the shiploader was particularly designed, in order to reduce as much as possible the belt speed, the belt inclination and type. All these improvements and others have been applied in order to avoid any kind of spillage of conveyed material (clinker and cement) and to reduce dust generation at each belt conveyor transfer point.
