Convinced by Bühler's performance over the years and, in particular, its proven energy-saving chain conveyor technology, Wheata has recently ordered a new high-capacity silo facility for its operations in Port Sudan. It was not only Bühler's ability to provide every part of the solution from a single source that convinced Wheata, but also the training Bühler provides its staff in conjunction with the installation of plants and the ongoing service.
In order to meet Wheata's current demands, it required the installation of a larger mechanical ship unloader. With 600 t/h, the new unloader Portalink 600/70RK doubled the throughput of the facility. In addition, a completely new greenfield silo plant with a vast storage capacity of 61500 t was built. The wheat is transported from the unloader via fixed docking points at the pier through an underground tunnel to the roundhouse. Here, the wheat is cleaned and weighed before it is stored in the silo.
