VASTERAS, SWEDEN — Alapala is building a new flour mill for Abdon Invest AB in Vasteras, Sweden, which is its first in the region.
Abdon Food is one of the leading cereal companies in the Nordic region. The company is building a new mill to strengthen its locally produced product offerings and improve its environmental impact through reduced transportation.
The greenfield mill will have a wheat flour capacity of 275 tpd and a rye flour capacity of 25 tpd. Using locally supplied raw materials, the mill will produce the flour for domestic consumption.
The mill’s steel construction, as well as special internal square bins will be provided by Alapala Construction, an Alapala Group company that specializes in the design, supply, and construction of industrial buildings worldwide. All equipment will be provided in compliance with European norms and the ATEX directive for explosion protection.
Alapala is well-known for its automation systems that enable the entire process to be centrally monitored, using Scada software and remote connection. These systems offer integrated process control and traceability advantages, along with advanced report generation for data such as production, yield, efficiency, etc. With the remote connection feature, the mill can be accessed 24/7 by the Alapala after-sales team for technical assistance including inspection, error diagnosis, calibration, and troubleshooting.
