It will consist of 100 floors and incorporate offices, apartments, a 5 star hotel, parking, a museum, and public spaces. It is modeled after the medieval military towers and since this huge building will be built in the earthquake zone, a very strict technical specifications must be fulfilled at every stage. This means that for single foundation basis,
• 72×72 meter wide area
• 3,5 meters height
• B75 class high strength concrete to be poured
The construction company undertaking the Project has to pour a 17.000 m³ of heavyweight concrete each 3 days. Being circumspect and aware of this project huge size and technical requirements, the construction company has opted for ELKON equipment that could come over these challenges. By taking into consideration that ELKON has installed and commissioned almost 1000 concrete batching plants in Russia, the high quality and durability of ELKON concrete batching plants which guarantee unimpeded accomplishment of the whole project without any delay, then choosing ELKON is a non-surprising decision.

Each ordered batching plant is equipped by 4 cement silos. The aggregates will be transferred from the aggregates bin to the mixer in these batching plants by transfer conveyors. The Twin Shaft mixers of these concrete plants were manufactured by automated welding robots in ELKON factory. The mixers of the ELKOMIX-135 Quick concrete batching plants were equipped with special pallets to be used in the production of heavyweight concrete.
In addition to the 5 new batching plants ordered, MOBILE MASTER-60 Bear and MOBILE MASTER-60 Pegasus mobile concrete batching plants were purchased by the same company earlier, will also be used to accomplish the project.
