Terminal and environment

The terminal is located close to urban areas. For that reason we at Luka Koper d.d. devote special attention to the environmental aspects of terminal operation.  
In order to limit the negative influence of terminal operations, particularly the dust, we have introduced the following measures:

  • computer-controlled closed conveyor system for unloading of ships,
  • ship loader is equipped with an anti-dust telescopic tube,
  • we have set up a system of sprinkling towers and an aluminium barrier (11 metres) around the terminal,
  • by spraying special cellulose mixture on the stockpiles we cover coal and ore with crust that prevents dusting even with strong wind,
  • sprinkling devices on the handling equipment,
  • cleaning the transport path around the terminal twice a day,
  • the technological water is collected, treated and re-used.
