Godrej project

Godrej Project was located in Hanuman Junction, 60 miles east of Vijayawada, India. The value of contract is worth 4.9 million dollars. The project includes two extruded fish feed production lines, and two shrimp feed production lines. They are all made of steel, with electric control equipments. Fish feed production lines and shrimp feed production lines are separated into two main workshops. Godrej Project used Famsun’s full-set shrimp feed production equipments, the extruder, dryer, grinder, and supporting facility are bought from other companies.

nabim: Going the Distance – Training the milling workforce for the 21st century

The International Milling Directory‘s 22nd edition for 2013-14 featured Alexander Waugh, director general of nabim on page 3, discussing flour in a very interesting style. This however does not mention the long ties between nabim and Perendale Publishers, who published that discursive letter.

Here for an interesting mid-week blog post is an article on training for better skills for milling professionals from 2011 which was published our sister magazine, Grain & Feed Milling Technology magazine:

Introducing: FineTek

FineTek

Another new member has joined The International Milling Directory.

The Taiwan-based manufacturer is a company dedicated to ‘complete instrumentation solutions’. FineTek’s product line includes a varied and wide quantity of digital controllers and meters, pneumatic products, safety instruments,  level switch transmitters for solid and liquid applications. However all impressive this range of categories are, we are interested most in the manufacture of  the level sensor for silo bulk storage. This product is the key selling point for a justifiable place in the International Milling Directory. This alone is all the more impressive considering their research and development arm is an integral part of the company, which sets a strong “backbone” of the company.

IMD21 Company Focus (i): Vigan Engineering S.A.

Hello and welcome to what I suppose you could call a new series of our introductions to those of you listed with IMD for 2012/13 and who are appearing in IMD21.

This week we introduce a company returning once again to IMD where for another year they will enjoy international exposure to millers and milling service-providers across the globe.

Always on the move, VIGAN Engineering S.A. designs and manufactures harbour equipment and more particularly ship loaders and unloaders.

They lead the way in mobile portable grain pumps (120 to 270 tons/hour) that are particularly flexible with a wide range of accessories available allowing cargo handling in many different working configurations. For higher capacity requirements (200 to 800 tons/hour) VIGAN offer their own pneumatic Continuous Ship Unloaders on gantry called “NIV”. Self-propelled on tires or rails, they can be powered by diesel engine or electrical motors and each machine is bespoke designed based on the customers needs.

VIGAN’s range of equipment stretches beyond pumps though. Their catalogue also includes a mechanical CSU called “SIMPORTER” designed to meet very high discharging rates up to 1,500 metric tons/hour. It is particularly suitable for large bulk carriers. The twin-belt SIMPORTER technology offers major benefits: efficiency, cost-effectiveness (minimum energy consumption, reduced operational and maintenance cost) and environment-friendly qualities such as minimum noise, dust control, and no product breakage.

Besides unloading equipment, VIGAN’s mechanical shiploaders (rail-mounted, on tires or stationary)are suitable for almost any kind of bulk products (with a density from 0.2 to 1.8) on any kind of barge or vessel based on requirements (up to 1,200tonnes/hour)

VIGAN also provide a seemingly infinite wisdom of other harbour equipment based on more than 30 years experience. They now offer services in design projects such as mobile hoppers/bagging lines and quay conveyors, but also in turnkey port terminals delivery from engineering to commissioning, this includes silos & other storage.

We here at IMD HQ wish VIGAN every success this year and I would like to thank them for choosing IMD once again.

If you would like your company to feature as part of ‘Company Focus’ please feel free to get in touch.

Until next time!
