The Descale Robotic Arm is sold to Akansa Cement in Samsun, Turkey. The Descale Robotic Arm, complete with power pack and a 10m tower was commissioned this week.
Akçansa, a joint venture of Sabanci Holding and HeidelbergCement, was founded in 1996. The company is the leading producer of cement and ready-mixed concrete in Turkey. Operating in the Marmara, Aegean, and Black Sea regions of Turkey, Akçansa produces cement at its Istanbul, Çanakkale, and Ladik plants, and operates 9 cement terminals.
With its “0” accident goal policy and placing the greatest emphasis on the “human” factor, Akçansa founded the Health & Safety Academy at its Büyükçekmece and Çanakkale plants. Through this initiative, Akçansa aims at educating 5,000 people with 80,000 hours of training per year, including theoretical and practical workshops for its own employees, but also for shareholders and suppliers.
