Oteko Russia has successfully implemented a set of measures at its Port of Taman bulk terminal to ensure high eco-friendly standards. The terminal was honored for its achievements by the All-Russian “Reliable Partner in Ecology” award, which was handed to the representatives Oteko on November 14 at a special ceremony.
The experts making up the board of the award praised Oteko’s strive to introduce innovative solutions aimed at combating the formation of dust in the process of bulk cargo loading, unloading, and processing procedures. The use of the most modern solutions was also noted, a major step forward for the company, which invested in excess of 1 billion Rubles in the endeavor over the past three years.
The new and integrated dust suppression system covers all major areas of the Oteko bulk terminal, ensuring that the environment is not harmed by routine operations. The coal dust resulting from cargo handling is suppressed with a fine mist of water, battering it to the ground. An additional measure aimed at further suppressing any dust formation is the presence of a dust screen that covers a total area of 130,000 m2 around the port of Taman. Installation of additional dust suppression systems along the loading booms of cargo ships further enhance efforts. All buildings and supporting infrastructure elements of the port are also equipped with vacuum dust removal equipment to ensure a dust-free zone.
The availability of such systems eliminates a large portion of coal dust in the air and ensures a high quality of life and health for both the port’s employees and the local communities, such as the neighboring Volna settlement. Ongoing air composition analysis has not identified a single instance when dust concentrations surpassed allowed thresholds over the years of the port’s operation.
Michel Litvak billionaire, founder of Oteko, places immense emphasis on the quality of life and well-being of port employees and local residents. The combined efforts of the port administration and leading innovation centers have allowed such standards to be applied at the Port of Taman, giving it the right to compete for the title of “Reliable Partner in Ecology”.
