TALKE reaches important milestone in its major project for SLOVNAFT Group

  • Construction of logistics plant for polyethylene granules exactly on schedule
  • Completion of whole logistics plant planned for Q1/2015
  • TALKE now analysing logistics processes at Bratislava plant

TALKE Group has reached an important milestone in its largest new build project in Europe so far: the silo unit of the logistics complex that TALKE is currently building for the Slovakian SLOVNAFT Group has been completed as planned.

Acting as general contractor, TALKE finished erecting the 28 silos, successfully completing a key construction stage of the 22 million-Euro project. The silo farm is the heart of the logistics plant designed by TALKE for handling and filling polyethylene granules. SLOVNAFT´s new polyethylene production unit plant is due to be completed in the second quarter of 2015. The new logistics plant, which is connected directly to the production line, provides handling capacity for up to 220 kilotons of low density polyethylene per year.

The new building on the premises of the petrochemical division of Bratislava-based SLOVNAFT Group also houses packaging and warehouse space, offices, circulation routes and manoeuvring areas. In addition, it will contain two bagging and packaging lines, three loading devices for bulk cargo and the product feed lines leading from the degassing silos to the storage silos.

The planners and engineers of TALKE's Logistics Solutions business unit managed to run through the official approval procedure together with local engineering consultants in only three months. The approval was an important prerequisite for a timely kick-off of the project and smooth construction works.
