Soda (light or heavy) in bulk, bags or big bags forms a considerable share of cargo traffic at port of Varna West.  Berths No.7 and No.8 are dedicated for handling of this type of cargo.  These berths are linked to the soda factory by a conveyor belt with length 1.5 km to load the bulk soda directly into the ship moored at Berth No.7.  There are 2 shiploaders at the quayside which are connected with the belt conveyor and operate with capacity of 400 tons per hour each.  The specialized handling technology allows to concentrate the cargo in a dedicated warehouse when there is no ship for loading at the berth.  Thus the ship can be loaded with the product flowing from the factory, as well as from the concentrated stock in the warehouse.
