Cimbria said record-breaking grain yields in the last few years in that region have encouraged farmers and companies engaged in the trade of grain to invest in grain silos.
“With a strong local set-up on the market and the ability to offer a full-package solution, Dotnuva Baltic has secured a solid position as a preferred supplier in the Baltic States,” Cimbria said.
Three new Cimbria silo installations were completed in Lithuania last year, augmented by expansions of four previously installed facilities, Cimbria said. Furthermore, two turnkey silo plants were successfully implemented in which Dotnuva Baltic was responsible for everything from design/engineering, construction of the foundations, equipment supply, installation and automation.
The capacity of grain silos built by Dotnuva Baltic in 2017 exceeded 130,000 tonnes, while the total capacity of grain storage facilities established by the company since its inaugural year of business in 1999 is approximately 1 million tonnes, Cimbria said.
“In recent years, the total quantity of grain harvested in Lithuania has been more than 6 million tonnes — which means that close to one-fifth of the total grain yield in Lithuania is stored in grain silos built by Dotnuva Baltic,” Cimbria said.
Cimbria noted that in 2018 in the Baltic States four contracts for industrial grain elevators already have been signed and construction works has commenced.
Dotnuva Baltic’s activities and services includes seeds, machinery, farming and grain equipment, as well as drawing up proposals, designing plants, carrying out installation and after-sales service.
