Alvan Blanch Hand Over Two Skid Mounted Seed Cleaning Units in Egypt and Sudan

Alvan Blanch conceived, designed and manufactured two skid-mounted seed cleaning plants, for the Al Rajhi Group, for their large arable farms in Egypt and Sudan.

These plants are the latest of the series of crop processing systems that Alvan Blanch have now integrated into their unique design of modular fully-enclosed skid frames.  Featuring excellent operational accessibility from the hinged doors that open as sunshades and perimeter walkways, but which when closed afford effective security and cover.

The pre-erected plants arrived on site in June ready for final commissioning on site. This was undertaken by Alvan Blanch senior processing specialist, David Sanderson. In Egypt, David gave dedicated training to operatives, in optimised adjustment and maintenance of the plant. Officials from Al Rajhi Group and from the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture also attended.

Having handed over the plant in Egypt, David proceeded to Sudan, where even strong sand storms and the searing heat (55 deg. C) could not prevent a similarly successful commissioning and training to operatives.

David Sanderson found the whole experience memorable and was pleased with the quality of treated wheat in both locations and continues: “I was delighted to oversee the design, engineering and build of the skid-mounted seed cleaning plant for Al Rajhi Group in Egypt and Sudan. The projects were successfully  handed over in less than 6 months from order to commissioning.”
