Last year management team of Alebor Group has approved a fundamental decision on the development of each and all enterprises included into the Group of Companies. Wide investment program was elaborated and implemented during the current year. Now we can proudly state that the modernization has succeeded and all grain-collecting stations effectively utilized their new increased capacities during new harvesting season.
With the help of our colleagues from www.elevatorist.com we told you in details about the progress of modernization of Khrystynivske, Voronovytske and Chesne Grain-Collecting Stations.
Let’s have a look at combined results.
Three new flat-bottom silo bins with storage capacity of 5 thousand tons each, and one operational silo bin with storage capacity of 1.5 thousand tons were constructed at Chesne Grain-Collecting Station.
One more section and an additional gas burner were added to the grain dryer, so now it is possible to dry 2,500 tons of grain per 24 hours at 4-5 ton-% of moisture removed. This figure previously was 1,500 tons per 24 hours.
Moreover, one more automated intake point with load-bearing capacity of 80 tons was built and a new pneumatic sample-collecting device was installed. Due to this, grain elevator increased intake capacity of early grains to 200-240 tons per hour.
Chesne Grain Collecting Station has one railway track; two more will be added – for the second loading point and for the depot. In-house locomotive allows speeding up the process of loading of railcars from the silo.
At Voronovytske Grain-Collecting Station grain storage capacity was increased by 39 thousand tons – up to 140 thousand tons of storage capacity is available now;
Operational capacities went up by 6 thousand tons – up to 15 thousand tons currently.
Gravity grain spreader was installed inside one of silo bins. Due to this device grain is spread evenly within the silo bin.
Oleksiy Kustov, the Founder of Alebor Group of Companies noted, that even considering poor work efficiency of railway they faced last year, this grain elevator will be able to take more than 400 thousand tons of grain now. If we just imagine that the railway logistics improves, then Voronovytske Grain-Collecting Station will be able to enlarge the range of products intake by adding sunflower seed and soybean by 30%.
Also there was a grain dryer with productive capacity of 250 tons per hour is installed at the elevator. Now the drying capacity increased to 6,900 tons per 24 hours on corn at 10 ton-% of moisture removed.
The greatest amount of works was planned and fulfilled at Khrystynivske Grain Collecting Station. There were 6 silo bins with storage capacity of 10 thousand tons each built. Thus, total storage capacity was increased to 134 thousand tons.
Grain dryer was enhanced with two more sections. Its productive efficiency is 3.3 thousand tons per 24 hours at 6% of moisture removed;
New color sorter with the capacity of 150 tons per hour was installed;
The transportation system with the capacity of 175 tons per hour was built;
Great effort was done regarding new access complex construction. Now the second scales are installed and new premises for laboratory are built.
