SUDAN – Turkey’s premier milling equipment company Alapala, is set to build a turnkey greenfield feed mill project in Khartoum, Sudan.

This will be the company’s 7th reference project in the country and second feed mill in the Eastern African nation.

The planned feed mill will have a processing capacity of 10 tonnes per hour (TPH), comprising of a sorghum intake and storage unit, sorghum flake unit, cake grinding unit, silage handling unit, mixing unit, and storage unit.

According to Alapala, it will import its raw material and produce white sorghum flakes, groundnut cake, ground straw, and molasses for domestic use.

The mill’s steel silos with a total capacity of 12,408 tons will be provided by Symaga in Spain.

The facility which is scheduled to be operational by February 2022, will feature a state-of-the-art automation system and will also be equipped with a remote connection feature.

“Thanks to this feature, Alapala after-sales team can access the mill for technical assistance such as inspection, error diagnosis, calibration, and troubleshooting,” indicated the company.

As a global provider of turnkey greenfield and modernization projects, Alapala will build this greenfield feedlot feed mill based on its unique expertise and experience of many years.

Last year, the company completed the installation of the newest flour mill reference at the National Flour Mill Company in neighbouring Somaliland.

Being the first flour mill in the country, it was commissioned in April 2020 and has started operations.

The mill has a processing capacity of 110,000 MT wheat annually, using hard and semi-hard wheat to produce high-quality bakery flour mainly domestic consumption.

Alapala has over 600 turn-key references worldwide in over 120 countries in 4 continents and is continuing with turnkey projects, including modernizations and feed milling facilities across the world in 2021 despite the effects of the pandemic.
