Cellular concrete production accelerated in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 19 / Trend N. Ismayilova /

The production capacity of the Plant of Modern Construction Materials AAC which produces cellular concrete increased to 400 cubic metres per day, the head of the company's marketing and sales department Vugar Hamidov told media today.

"The increase in the plant's capacity depends on the volume and needs of the market," he said.

"The enterprise capacity is close to 600 cubic metres, the design capacity of the plant."

"This company is comparable to any plant in the world operating on the same principle," Wehrhahn Company general manager for construction Lutz Vahe told the media. "The plant is exemplary in its configuration."

On 26 December 2011, an official opening of the Plant of Modern Construction Materials "AAC" was held with the participation of President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev. After the head of state launched the production process personally, he was closely acquainted with the production and finished products.

The Plant of Modern Construction Materials "AAC" is built in accordance with the industrialisation policy the head of state conducts for the non-oil sector and, being also an enterprise that is constructed on the basis of innovation technology, it fully meets up-to-date standards. It is provided with high-technology equipment of the well-known German company WERHAHN.

The plant is located at the 47th km of the Baku-Salyan highway in the area of 10 ha. There are: an aerated concrete plant, with the roofed production area of 12,000 m2; a plant for the production of quick lime and slaked lime, with the roofed production area of 6,000 m2; a silica sand washing plant, with the production area of 3,600 m2, which is provided with the most up-to-date equipment of the British company "CDE"; a finished product storage with the area of 8,800 m2; a raw material storage with the area of 4,500 m2; an office building with the area of 1,200 m2; a water-storage reservoir with the volume of 1,500 m3; a railway line with the length of 300 m; a vehicle storage and maintenance area of 5,400 m2; and other facilities in the area of 2,500 m2. The territory of the plant includes also the development area of 15,000 m2.

The National Fund for Entrepreneurship Support at the Ministry of Economic Development granted the credit of 10 million manat at preferential rate for the plant construction. The total cost of the plant construction is 40 million manat.

Along with having up-to-date technology, the Plant of Modern Construction Materials "AAC" is also a "green" facility. So, 20 % of its area is occupied by green plants. Besides, the production process is non-waste. The manufacturing waste is recycled, and domestic and industrial wastewaters of the plant are re-used upon treatment.

Local raw materials are used in the aerated concrete production. They are mainly silica sand and limestone. Sand is delivered directly to the plant from the silica sand mine at Umbaki, Absheron District. Delivery of limestone is carried out by railway from a limestone quarry in the Gazakh region after extraction and processing.

Due to using high-quality raw materials and up-to-date technological equipment of the German company "Wehrhahn" for the aerated concrete production, the plant manufactures aerated concrete blocks under the brand name "gobustone", which will properly take their place in the construction sector.

Besides, the Plant of Modern Construction Materials "AAC" produces 100 tons of quick lime and 120 tons of slaked lime daily. The production of quick lime and slaked lime is based on the advanced technology of the company "Wehrhahn". The laboratory provided with Germany-made equipment that meets up-to-date requirements carries out full control over quality of raw materials and finished products. This ensures that manufacturing of products and their quality comply with up-to-date standards.

The features of the aerated concrete blocks "gobustone":

• Heat-insulating - heat-insulating capacity of aerated concrete blocks is six times as much as those of bricks;
• Environmentally safe - non-toxic;
• Sound-insulating - this is several times as much as sound-insulating capacity of other construction materials;
• Fire-resistant - the blocks with the thickness of 10 cm can resist fire for above 2 hours;
• Pressure-resistant and earthquake-proof;
• Free-cutting - free-cutting and the masonry is laid 3 times faster that in case of other construction materials;
• Lightweight - light weight at large and accurate sizes;
• Economically beneficial - there are saved 30-40 % of power in buildings and costs are reduced by 20-30 % during construction of the foundation.
