Factory on manufacture of disinfectants Factory on Iodine manufacture «Berzengi» mineral medicinal water enterprise Factory on medical mud and sea salt packing Factory on manufacture of disinfectants Pharmaceutical enterprise «Saglyk» Pharmaceutical enterprise «Tenekär» Agro industrial complex “Buýan” named after S.A.Niyazov Joint Venture “Turkmenderman Ajanta Pharma limited”
One of very important among them is a Berzengi source located 7.5 km to the south of a white marble capital of the country, in the Central Kopetdag foothills. The water from this free-flow source No1 from the depth of 1 250 meters contains numerous useful minerals in its composition. Its total Mineralization – M-3.2g/dm3, temperature – 36oС, рН=3.3. The source water yield is 5 liters of water a second. In “Berzengi” mineral water composition there are following minerals: azot – 92 % out of total gases, hydrogen sulphide – 3.3- 3.9mg/dm3, sulphates, calcium, magnesium – 83, 57, 28 equiv. % accordingly. In a small amount, it contains sich micro impurities as: iodine – 0.2 mg/ dm3, bromine – 1.1 mg/dm3, zinc – 10-15 mg/dm3, manganese – 0.005mg/dm3. From the hydro geochemical point of view this water is referred to medical-table mineral waters. “Berzengi” mineral water is recommended at the following diseases:
I. Gastrointestinal tract diseases:
II. Endocrine Diseases:
III. Urology Diseases:
and slight azotemia;
In view of the aforesaid, the construction in Ashgabat, in Berzengi, “Berzengi” Mineral Medicinal Water Enterprise, which construction works have been performed in accordance with the Decree of the President of Turkmenistan No 12548 dated September 14, 2012 “On Construction of Pharmaceutical Enterprises of the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan” by Turkish Company “DAY INSAAT TURIZM TEKSTIL VE DIS TICARET A.S.”.
The Enterprise has a capacity of 5, 0 million bottles of water a year or 3 500 bottles of water an hour. The bottles of the volume of 250 ml or 500 ml of water are produced in an aerated and in non-aerated form.
The Enterprise operates process, production and auxiliary equipment, devices for quality and quantity analyses of Italian company “Korfil”. The production process at the Enterprise is conducted in accordance with the increased requirements of our time.
The Enterprise includes the Water Treatment Department, the Production Department and the Quality Control and Microbiology Department.
Water Treatment Department
In the Department the water from a natural source is collected in a tank of the volume of 10 tons, passed through a coarse filter and treated from stones and other solid particles. Then on specialized equipment the water is treated from iron and manganese ions. At the following stage the water is passed through activated carbon and softened to a certain extent and collected in a tank of the volume of 5 tons. Then industrial water is consistently passed through the fine filters of the sizes of 10 micron and 5 micron and exposed to an ultra- violet light. The completely treated water is supplied to the Production Department.
The Department work is performed at high level in accordance with the European requirements. Here, the water treated and cooled up to 10oC and enriched with carbon dioxide or carbon-dioxide gas (СО2) in a degree of 9 g/l. This work is carried out on equipment of German Company “Wayskof”.
Simultaneously, the bottles for filling with mineral water are put on special equipment and supplied to a monoblock. In a monoblock 16 bottles are washed simultaneously, filled with industrial water and closed with a screw cap. At the next stage the bottles are labeled and marked. Then 6 pieces of 500-ml bottles per pack and 12 pieces of 250-ml bottles per pack are wrapped up with polyethylene film and delivered to the finished goods warehouse.
Quality Control and Microbiology Department
In the Department various analytical devices for quality, quantity and microbiological analyses are placed. They are made in the developed countries of Europe. Here, observance of sanitary norms at the Enterprise, quality of used water, raw and packing materials is consistently controlled. The compliance with the established norms of mineralization degree and carbon- dioxide gas content in the finished goods as well as рН indicator is constantly checked.
The analyses are conducted in accordance with the European requirements. The finished goods of this enterprise will provide the people of the country with curative water of the sacred Turkmen land. The versatile medical property of this mineral water is a convincing basis for its export to the foreign countries.
