WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA — Hi Roller (a division of Ag Growth International) announced on Sept. 13 that it has entered into a major contract with Taman Grain Terminal to supply enclosed belt conveyors.
Hi Roller said its equipment will be used in the construction of the Taman Grain Terminal port facility located in Krasnodar Region, Russia. Once constructed, Hi Roller said its enclosed belt conveyors will complete a long pier with one of the highest ship loading capacities on the Black Sea at 1,500 tonnes per hour. Hi Roller’s Hi Life model conveyors are uniquely designed to eliminate dust and spillage while handling high throughputs of grain products. This will allow Taman Grain Terminal to load up to Panamax-sized vessels with high efficiency and minimal environmental impact.
The Taman Grain Terminal is a subsidiary of OJSC Efirnoye (EFKO), one of the largest edible oil processing companies in Russia. Construction of the Taman Grain Terminal port facility is set to be completed by December, 2010.
