Alapala agrees to build a new mill in Sweden
Alapala, one of the two leading players of the global milling industry with an impressive record of more than 700 successfully completed mills across the globe, has agreed to build a new mill for Abdon Invest AB in Vasteras, Sweden. This project is of great significance for Alapala as it will be the company's very first reference project in the region.
Driven by the passion for food and a great curiosity when it comes to developing new products, Abdon Food is one of the leading cereal companies in the Nordic region. Wishing to strengthen the offer of locally produced products and improving its environmental impact through reduced transportation, the company decided to invest in a new mill to be established in Vasteras. Looking for an equally able and passionate provider that would understand their needs and expectations and meet them with proven expertise, the company decided to work with Alapala, known for its unique global experience and know-how of more than 60 years.
Sharing the purpose of contributing to a sustainable future through a combination of experience and innovation, the two companies have agreed to work together to build a greenfield mill with a wheat flour capacity of 275 T/24h and a rye flour capacity of 25T/24h. Using locally supplied raw materials, this new mill will produce wheat and rye flour for domestic consumption.
The mill's steel construction, as well as special internal square bins will be provided by Alapala Construction, an Alapala Group company which specialises in the design, supply, and construction of industrial buildings worldwide. All equipment will be provided in compliance with European norms and the ATEX directive for explosion protection.
Alapala is well-known for its highly robust automation systems that enable the entire process to be centrally monitored, using Scada software and remote connection. These systems offer integrated process control and traceability advantages, along with advanced report generation for data such as production, yield, efficiency, etc. With the remote connection feature, the mill can be accessed 24/7 by Alapala after-sales team for technical assistance including inspection, error diagnosis, calibration, and troubleshooting.
Upon the successful completion of this significant project with its unmatched expertise in turnkey milling projects, Alapala will add a new one to the long list of its global achievements.
