ATAKAŞ TİCARET VE NAKL A.Ş was established in 1989 as one of the first import coal companies in Turkey. ATAKAŞ processes the highest quality coals it imports in coal screening and packing facilities with an annual capacity of 2.500.000 tons located in three regions of Turkey. ATAKAŞ imports coal from various countries (Russia, USA, South Africa), processes them in screening and packing facilities in İskenderun, and Gebze/Kocaeli and offers the products to the consumers for use in industrial and heating purposes.

Our facility includes 20 griddles for coal sizing, 15 coal packing units and 15 heavy construction equipment. Within this concept, our facility is Turkey’s biggest imported coal storing, screening and packing facility.
Atakaş Tic.Nak. A.Ş Gebze branch was established in Gebze Industrial Zone in 2004. In 2012, branch was transferred to Dilovası Coal Dealers Organized Industrial Zone. Today, the site has a capacity of 1.000.000 tons per year with 7 bagging and 5 screening facilities on 95.000 m2 area.

Main activity area of the factory that has been active in Payas Industrial Park since 1995 is obtaining “briquette coal” for heating purposes from lignite powder coal. High quality (7200 Kcal/Kg) imported Russian lignite powders brought into factory site for this purpose are transferred to production through hoppers and conveyor belts. At one point during this process, slaked powder lime and molasses are added with the help of electronic dosing unit and the mixture is transferred to the mixer. The mixture is carried along the press machine under 200 bar pressure. Then, the conveyor belt under the pres machine carries approximately 140 gr/piece sized briquette coals to the griddle unit and then to the packing hopper. Briquette coals are launched to the market after being packed in 25 kg laminated bags in the load-cell controlled serial packing unit with 150 tons/hour capacity. A second production line was added in the Payas Industrial Park factory site to increase capacity. Currently, the factory has an annual capacity of 675.000 tons/year. Atakaş Kömür San. Ve Tic. A.Ş. opened a new branch in Kocaeli/Gebze/Tavşanlı district in 2004 and established a new coal brand; “CEMRE”. This way, Atakaş doubled its capacity and became Turkey’s largest briquette coal producer.
“YEŞİLKOR” and “CEMRE” branded briquette coals have TSE 12055 1. Grade Declaration of Conformity and are the first brands to receive this certificate in Turkey.
Azganlık Storage Site is currently the largest coal importer for Turkish cement factories on 35.000 m2 area with its 5.000 m/ton daily loading capacity and 600.000 m/ton annual petroleum coke import capacity from Russia, the USA, and Venezuela.
