Hatay Airport Domestic and International Terminal Building Project
Start and End Date
July 2009 - June 2010
Total Concrete Amount 80.000 m³ Concrete Classes and Amount C 30/37
The time of completion for the Hatay Airport project has been planned as 500 working days. The project will mainly use C 30-class concrete. Due to the intense work schedule of the project, in order to provide ready-mixed concretes in proper time and to the correct amount, OYAK Concrete has built a fully automatic computer-aided wet system concrete plant with a capacity of 120 m³/hour on the project site. This is the second airport terminal whose concrete provision has been fulfilled by OYAK Concrete, the first being Ankara Esenboğa Airport, which won an award for best infrastructure project in Europe.
When it comes to the concretes used within the scope of the project, design, production methods, quality control, pressure resistance, and durability are of the utmost importance. OYAK Concrete is able to ensure 24-hour concrete provision under extreme temperatures and in a region with continuous prevailing wind. In order for the concrete to not be affected by adverse weather conditions, intense measures have been taken and super plasticizing agents and retarders are to be used during production.
