PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF CEMENT EXPORT TERMINAL – SOKHNA PORT, EGYPT
The project comprises an export terminal for 2.0 million tons of cement clinker for a cement clinker plant of the Arabian Cement Company. The cement clinker will be transported from the plant to the port by bulk trucks. At the terminal, the cement clinker will be dumped in two underground dump pits and transported to a warehouse and dumped on a 60,000 ton stockpile using a rail mounted stacker. From the stockpile the cement clinker will be reclaimed by wheel loaders which load the conveying system via two bulk receiving units. The cement clinker will be loaded into vessels up to Panamax size with a capacity of 1,500 tph using a rail mounted shiploader.
