Burgas, Bulgaria (PortSEurope) May 23, 2018 – A new €11 million ($12.89 million) terminal for the treatment, processing and storage of sulphuric (sulfuric) acid has been officially inaugurated in Bulgaria’s second largest Black Sea port of Burgas. The investment in the 50,000-tonnes terminal was made by the largest Bulgarian port operator BMF Port Burgas and Aurubis Bulgaria. Aurubis AG is the biggest client of Port
Burgas. Construction work lasted less than one year. The copper production plant of Aurubis Bulgaria produced in 2017 375,200 tonnes anode copper, 228,500 t. cathode copper and 1,358,500 t. sulphuric acid. The terminal, with five 10,000-tonne tanks, covers 27,000 m2 and is expected to handle over one million tonnes of cargo per year. It will increase the traffic via the port by 100 ships per year. In 2015, both companies built a storage facility for copper row material at the port. Bulgarian Bright Engineering Ltd designed the project which includes: tanks for sulphuric acid; railway unloading of sulphuric acid; pump station; piping; control room and workshop; system for automated control and visualisation; and roads. Hamburg-based Aurubis AG is is the largest copper producer in Europe and the largest copper recycler worldwide. Source: Economic Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2018.
