STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN — Perten Instruments and ABP, its partner in Turkey, announced on Feb. 9 that they have won a tender issued by the Turkish Grain Board (TMO) under which Perten and ABP will deliver 250 Inframatic Near Infrared whole grain analyzers, for placement at TMO's grain terminals across Turkey.
Perten said that after a very thorough evaluation of several NIT instruments, TMO found that the Inframatic was the only instrument to fullfill all the requirements of the tender. The Inframatic grain analyzers will be delivered with an integrated Hectoliter Weight (Test Weight) module and calibrations for a range of grain types. The full scope of the contract includes communication solutions, instrument monitoring and a multi-year service and support commitment.
"We are very proud to have won what is probably the world's largest contract ever for Near Infrared whole grain analyzers" says Sven Holmlund, chief executive officer of the Perten Instruments Group. "This contract is further proof of our excellent product range and customer support, and strengthens our position as a leading supplier to the grain industry."
