KVANUM, SWEDEN — TORNUM delivered another 27,000 cubic meters of grain storage capacity to Varaslättens Lagerhus in Sweden.

The last year’s aggressive investment at Varaslättens Lagerhus has increased the company’s turnover by 30%, and they now handle 200,000 tonnes of grain every year. The increased volume has forced Varaslättens Lagerhus to use external solutions for storing grain, which is both time and resource intensive. To get rid of the external solutions, they decided to invest further in the plant in Vara, Sweden.

“Varaslättens Lagerhus has for a long time been an important customer and partner to us and it’s very pleasant that they once again choose TORNUM as a supplier when they invest in their facilities,” said Carl-Otto Knopp, project manager at TORNUM.

The project consists of four steel silos of 6,700 cubic meters each which will give Varaslättens Lagerhus a total storage capacity of 130,000 tonnes of grain at its elevator in Vara. The order also includes transport equipment with a capacity of 150 tph and assembly.

“TORNUM has big knowledge and experience in supplying systems to the grain industry and has several times proven that they are a reliable supplier, and we have had a good dialogue throughout the procurement process,” said Fredrik Blade, chief executive officer, Varaslättens Lagerhus.
