Dust suppression system built in Tuapse port

Tuapse Commercial Sea Port has completed construction of unique for Russia dust suppression system in conformance with the projected single sanitary protection zone.

As the port’s press-service reports, the works have been conducted for two years, 45 million roubles has been allocated for the project.

The system consists of six stationary and mobile water mist generators (the so-called «guns»), each of which creates around itself a water curtain 150 meters in radius. They are mounted right near the coal bunkers and reduce the level of dust dispersion by 80%. The last two mobile and one stationary "guns" were installed in November 2012.

In Russia, this technology is introduced for the first time.
