As a result of the efforts of our Esteemed President in developing the industrial and chemical sectors of our country, lots of industrial and chemical manufacturing facilities of international importance are constructed and put into operation in our country. Products manufactured in these facilities
provide full supply to the domestic markets of our country and most of them are imported abroad.
Currently, our country Turkmenistan continues to send many bulk products such as cement, carbamide and potassium to overseas markets.
The logistics of bulk products exported from our country will be easier by building and commissioning the bulk cargo terminal within Turkmenbashi International Seaport. Moreover, this terminal is the only terminal designed for bulk products throughout the region and will provide appropriate conditions for bulk products used in the chemical and agricultural industries to reach their final destination on time and to ensure logistics is reasonable.
The annual capacity of the bulk cargo terminal is equal to 3 million tons. Special technologies for storing grain, feed, our, chemical products and cement were installed in the terminal warehouse. The length of the terminal wharf is 440 meters and bulk cargo loading and unloading will be carried out on 3 ships of 5000 DWT at the same time.
In the terminal, 14 grain silos with 35,000 cubic meters of total volume and 8 cement silos with 6000 cubic meters of total volume were installed. Bulk cargo will be loaded from ships to containers and containers to ships through conveyor systems and conveyor ship loaders.
At the terminal, 1 bucket-crawler crane and 3 bucket cranes moving on steel rails were deployed.
Two cargo loading and unloading points were constructed for trucks and railway wagons with 1 hour/650 tons capacity. With a total area of 180.000 square meters.
