The modern materials plant AAC plans to export aerated concrete to the markets of Georgia and Russia, the head of the company's marketing and sales department Vugar Hamidov told media today.

The plant aims at providing the Azerbaijani construction market with materials and exporting them to neighbouring countries such as Russia, Iran and Georgia. This is as a result of great demand for aerated concrete which is likely to continue.

"Today, the plant has not exported the manufactured materials," he said. "However, the negotiations are being held with Georgia and Russia. As this is a new product many people do not know anything about it. But we are getting requests from interested parties."

He said that it will be possible to export the manufactured materials not earlier than the second half of the year. "We have a goal to take six to 10 per cent of the market of masonry building materials in the country", he said.

The modern building materials plant is an enterprise erected using innovative technology. It fully meets modern standards and is equipped with high-tech manufacturing equipment from the well-known German company, Wehrhahn.

The plant is located 47 kilometres along the Baku-Salyan highway in the area of 10 ha. There is: an aerated concrete plant with a covered production area of 12,000 square metres, a plant for the production of quick lime and slaked lime under a 6000sqm roof; a silica sand washing plant, with the production area of 3600 sqm which is provided with the most up-to-date equipment from the British company CDE and a finished product storage area covering 8800 sqm.

There is a raw material storage space of 4500 sqm an office building with the area of 1200 sqm; a water-storage reservoir with a volume of 1500 sqm; a railway line with the length of 300 m; vehicle storage and a maintenance area of 5400 sqm and other facilities in an area of 2500 sqm The plant's site also includes a development area of 15,000 sqm.

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

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, in the Absheron District. Delivery of limestone is carried out by railway from a limestone quarry in the Gazakh region after extraction and processing.

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