Poly Bags 


The Polyethylene Bag is a revolutionary system assisting in the bitumen transport. It provides a cost efficient alternative to Bitumen drums. The Polyethylene bags are capable of holding up to 1000 kg of bitumen. Advantages over the steel drums: 

In general the waste which remains in drums accounts for 3 – 4%, with Polyethylene Bag bags there is no residual waste; 
The packaging does not pollute the environment, as drums are hard to recycle and re-sell, especially for projects where the Bitumen is melted distantly from the system is easy for shipping and storing;
The cost of labor is reduced; 
Due to more efficient heating (only the bitumen is heated and not the drum), carbon emissions are reduced; 
Due to using and melting bitumen only when needed, the constant energy consumption to keep bitumen heated is avoided, which results again in lower carbon emissions; 
Due to cold shipment of the cargo across the world, saving of more carbon emissions in comparison to bulk shipments, which requires constant heating during ocean voyages. 
Armina Energy General Trading provides complete solutions around the Polyethylene Bags System, from supply to melting and storage tanks. Please contact us for further information and free consultation.

 

Ocean Vessels


Container ships are cargo ships that carry Bitumen load in truck-size intermodal containers, in a technique called containerization. They are a common means of commercial intermodal freight transport and now carry most seagoing non-bulk cargo.
Container ship capacity is measured in twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU). Typical loads are a mix of 20-foot and 40-foot (2-TEU) ISO-standard containers, with the latter predominant.

A bulk carrier, bulk freighter, or bulker is a merchant ship specially designed to transport unpackaged bulk cargo, such as Bitumen, Mazut, RPO, grains, coal, ore, and cement in its cargo holds. Since the first specialized bulk carrier was built in 1852, economic forces have fuelled the development of these ships, causing them to grow in size and sophistication. Today's bulkers are specially designed to maximize capacity, safety, efficiency, and to be able to withstand the rigours of their work.

 

Bitutainers

 

Bitutainers are essentially containers designed for shipment of cold bitumen in larger quantities and in containerized form, with the ability to heat the containers prior to use at the final destination through the application of various burner and heating systems, ranging from Thermal Oil to Electrical solutions. All containers meet all International Maritime rules, regulations and classifications and are certified by Lloyds or other internationally accepted certifying bodies for containers used in International Maritime Containerized Shipments. All Bitumen Containers supplied by Armina Energy General Trading are highly isolated and ensure the quality of the Bitumen transported and or stored in them is maintained throughout the operations they are intended for. Armina Energy General Trading is capable of providing Bitutainers in different sizes and models for different applications and purposes, dependent on customer requisition, some of which include: 
Bitutainers suitable for International Maritime Transport of Cold Bitumen in various sizes and storage capacities (20' & 40' containerized versions, being the most popular) 
Bitutainers suitable for mobile storage applications at destination ports or at construction sites 
Bitutainers suitable for replacing road emulsion sprayers 
Bitutainers serving as Terminal Tankage and discharge tankage for bulk vessel unloading 
Bitutainers serving as local mobile delivery systems combined with mobile storage 
And many other applications 
Armina Energy General Trading has the capacity and capability to design and produce custom purpose fit containers for specialty and specific customer requirements.

Armina Energy General Trading may further assist in delivering for some destinations, Bitumen: Via Railway to some European destinations 
in hot truck 
Road tankers with capacities of between 10 and 40 tones take most of the bitumen from the refineries. They have insulated single-compartment tanks, usually with some kind of heating such as heating tubes. To transport bitumen to intermediary depots with reheating facilities, insulated rail cars are used. Their capacity ranges from 10 tons to 50 tones and they are also fitted with electric heaters or direct oil-fired flam .
