The Pulkovo airport is one of the oldest airports in Europe. In recent years, the airport has been undergoing an extensive renovation to be brought up to modern standards, with a dramatic new terminal building erected upon completion. Astaldi and ICTAS companies have taken responsibility for the extension of Pulkovo Airport.
When it was time to build the airport, the Italian company Astaldi made a decision to provide such a project with the help of 2 stationary Semix concrete plants, with a capacity of 160 m3/h each. This would ensure that all necessary and necessary volumes and deadlines were met and that everything could be completed on time.
Maintaining the aggregate at a certain degree is important for producing concrete with the proper consistency. Hence, our customer decided to choose SEMIX's winter package solution. With claddings made by the sandwich panel and an aggregate heating system with 2 sets of steam generators the stationary concrete batching plant was ready to work at the coldest climate conditions.
Aggregates have been stored on aggregate storage silos which has a linear (in-line) design. With this structure, wheel-loaders will be able to load the aggregate storage silos with a regular ramp. Our customer preferred 4 x 30 m3 aggregate storage silos for each batching plant. Also with the presence of 8 pieces cement silo, 800 tons of cement storage capacity helped to maintain a great material storage.
