17 June 2015 Dry Bulk | Engineering & Equipment TTS (Transportation Technology Systems) is a manufacturing company with more than 20 years of experience in engineering and manufacturing of non-standard material handling systems and large-scale steel structures. The company’s main markets are Western Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltics. TTS is a part of LNK Industries, one of the largest industrial holding companies in the Baltics. Together with its affiliated companies,TTS recently completed four major marine terminals in Latvia and Lithuania, with a scope of work ranging from facility and equipment design and manufacture to offshore works and terminal construction. One of them is Riga Fertilizer Terminal (RFT) — the most modern terminal for transloading and short-term storage of mineral fertilizers in Northern Europe. The terminal was designed to warehouse up to six different fertilizers at a time in dome-shaped storage. The handling system allows for loading of two vessels up to PANAMAX size from various domes and from rail cars simultaneously. Another major terminal that TTS built is Riga Bulk Terminal. The main challenge was to design a dust-free system to handle different materials from alumina and fertilizers, to soya bean meal and raw sugar on a very limited plot of land in city environment. In addition to building turnkey bulk terminals and equipment the company manufactures speciality machines such as stackers, reclaimers, conveyor systems, ship, railcar and truck loading systems complete with automation, as well as non-standard storage equipment. The list of partners includes FLSmidth, Samson (Aumund Group), Metso, Sandvik, Andritz, FAM, BMH, Dieffenbacher and others. TTS production facilities include two workshops with a total area of over 20,000m2. The workshops are equipped with heavy cranes and large painting and shot-blasting chambers. The company employs 250 people including 50 engineers, 100 certified welders, and has a wide range of modern production machines. In its heavy artillery is a large horizontal boring mill to precision-machine 15m long and 4.5m high steel structures. The company is conveniently located close to Riga seaport, which allows for fast and cost efficient delivery to most locations in Europe or CIS by sea and rail.
