DHAKA, BANGLADESH — Alapala recently completed installation of a new flour milling unit for SKS Holding in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The Sena Flour Mill has a capacity of 300 tpd. SKS is one of the largest holdings of South Asia and Bangladesh and operates as an affiliate of the Bangladesh Army. It is active in many business fields and has three flour mills in Bangladesh with a total production capacity of 430 tpd.

The turnkey project was Alapala’s sixth in Bangladesh and included process design, manufacturing, project management, installation and commissioning services.

The Sena mill processes imported wheat to produce different types of flour for the domestic market. It produces Maida and Atta flour as well as Sooji, bran and other byproducts.

The flour mill is managed by an advanced automation system that provides a centralized monitoring ability of the entire process from the wheat intake to flour packaging. There is also the ability for generating very detailed reports (production figures, extraction, etc.).

The remote connection feature of the system enables the Alapala after-sales team to access the mill whenever technical assistance is required, including inspection, error diagnosis, calibration and troubleshooting.
