Claudius Peters supplies turnkey fertilizer terminal to the Port of Baku

Buxtehude, Germany – 9th May 2022

East meets West –  Port of Baku will serve as major hub

Claudius Peters, the German producer of innovative materials handling and processing systems for the global cement, gypsum and alumina industries, is proud to be supplying Baku International Sea Trade Port (PoB) with a complete fertilizer terminal including the mechanical bulk handling system and wagon loading.

The Port of Baku’s new fertilizer terminal will have the capacity to handle 2.5 million tons annually. The facility will have two warehouses with a total capacity of 60,000 tons, and state-of-the-art conveyor systems to unload the various types of fertilizers directly to warehouses or into wagons/rail hoppers at a newly designed wagon loading station. The fertilizer terminal will increase the role of Azerbaijan as a strategic transit country for Central Asian states.

Claudius Peters will supply the complete storage system as well as the associated belt entire electrical control system. The nature of various materials will of course present a challenge, some of which are flammable (Sulphur) or explosive such as ammonium-based fertilizer. The project will be carried out in partnership with established local players.

The new port of Baku was awarded the “EcoPorts” certificate in 2019 and is located about 70 km south of the capital Baku. A passenger terminal already exists there, and the industrial area is now being expanded with the fertilizer terminal. The port serves to connect the East with Europe and is considered a strategic project by the Government in Azerbaijan.

The first phase of engineering is complete.  Foundations and civils are in progress. We are looking forward to being part of the future transportation along the new silk road.

Baku International Sea Trade Port CJSC (aka the Port of Baku) has announced the start of construction of a fertilizer terminal at its new facility in Alat, Azerbaijan.
