Cimbria will design and engineer the mechanical, electrical and structural steel works on the project
The Port of Constanta has secured a leading position as one of Europe's major bulk centres, with its port currently handling a multitude of dry bulk such as iron ore and non-ferrous ore, grain, coal, coke, phosphate, cement and other building and construction materials.
These types of cargo operate in specialized terminals located next to the river-maritime basin that can facilitate both maritime and river vessels with direct trans-shipment on barges.
Cimbria will design and engineer the mechanical, electrical and structural steel works on the project, as well as managing onsite supervision of the local installation and authority from the completion of commissioning all the way through training.
1. There will be a railway truck intake system for unloading incoming railway trucks and conveying grain into silos. This intake system includes Cimbria chain conveyors, bucket elevators, and an enclosed GSI conveyor belt. The system also includes an overhang magnet for the removal of ferrous material and a bulk scale for recording the weight of incoming material. Once completed, this conveying system will be capable of transporting up to 600 TPH of grain into storage silos.
2. Barges sailing down the Danube for trans-shipment will be able to unload grain by means of existing shore cranes onto a moveable grab hopper. The grain will then be conveyed via the GSI enclosed conveyor belt, Cimbria bucket elevators and through the overhang magnet for removal of ferrous material, after which it will pass through the bulk scale for recording the weight of incoming material. This conveying system is designed to transport 800 TPH of grain into storage silos.
3. Domestic trucks will unload grain via a truck dump hopper. The grain will then be transported by Cimbria chain conveyors to storage silos, with material flow being recorded via a truck weighbridge.
4. Existing warehouses will unload by means of an existing belt conveyor with hopper, via a GSI enclosed conveyor belt, Cimbria bucket elevators and through the bulk scale for recording the weight of incoming material. This system is designed to transport grain from the storage silos at a capacity of 600 TPH.
Once completed, all 4-intake systems will be able to operate simultaneously.
• Silo storage consists of eight GSI silos of 25.6 m dia. and 10,000 MT, thus making up a total of 80,000 MT. The silos are equipped with an aeration system and sweep augers with a capacity of 300 TPH.
• Reclaim from silos with GSI enclosed belt conveyors from silos to ship loader at 1,500 TPH
• Rail-mounted ship loader, 1,500 MT, for loading ocean going Panmax and post-Panmax vessels
• All structural steel galleries and main elevator building (43 metres high)
• Cimbria MCC-PLC and SCADA control system
• Power and control cables, including main supply cables from MDP to all MCC Panels
• Onsite supervision and complete installation, crane, tools, etc.
