KHARTOUM, SUDAN — Morouj Commodities Ltd. is building a new flour mill in Sudan with Ocrim providing the construction.

Morouj, founded in 2005, is considered one of the largest companies in the food packaging, processing, importing and exporting sectors in Sudan. It provides a diverse range of products. This is its first flour mill.  

The new 600 tpd mill will produce flour for pasta and bakery products. It will include 1,200 tonnes of flour storage with an integrated 40-tph mixing line that also allows for the production of special flours through the addition of micro-ingredients.

The facility will be configured with the modular milling concept, which Ocrim said allows for cutting-edge maintenance. It is possible to stop only a part of the mill, resulting in greater productivity and flexibility in planning scheduled or unexpected maintenance. Ocrim said all that is possible through technological solutions for layout, plant engineering and automation.

Management of the mill will be provided through Ocrim’s management software, Management@mill. This allows for real-time control of the plant’s entire performance.

More and more companies, already integrated in the agri-food market, are approaching the milling sector for the first time, Ocrim said. In this last period, Ocrim has received many requests from companies that have decided to take a path that is new to them.
