"Tower, this is Mixer 123, do you read me? Clear to land?"
In İyidere district of Rize province, the ongoing construction
of the ÇAYKUR Tea Packaging factory faced a delay because
the pump from the cement mixer could not reach the necessary
height to pour.
Back to work after landing safe and sound on 3rd floor.
Construction firm officials huddled to find a solution and
decided to lift the 27-ton mixer to the 40-meter-high third floor
by means of a 120-ton capacity winch. Project Director Ali
Kemal Yılmaz explained that the cement pump's reach is 56-59
meters so this limitation was holding back the construction.
"So we opted for a practical solution."
İkidere district is on the western Black Sea coast of Rize.
