Excellent results for Omas Industries’ “Made in Italy” machinery: a new 200TPD milling plant in Samara, Russia

Thanks to the technological innovation of its machinery, Omas has won a contract to refurbish the whole soft wheat section of the Samarskye Melnizy mill

In September 2016, Omas signed an agreement to build a 200TPD mill in Samara, Russia. 

Samara is an important city, and the capital of the region of the same name, located in Central Russia, on the banks of the Volga. It is one of the 13 cities in the country with over one million inhabitants, and an important industrial history in both the aerospace and food industries. 

The milling group owned by OOO Samarskye Melnizy, has made research and innovation one of the mainstays of its operations, especially when it comes to the development of new products, acquisition of clients and expansion in the marketplace. 

The agreement between Omas and Samarskye Melnizy involves refurbishing the soft wheat section, which was built by Golfetto in 1998, using the very latest technologies developed for the milling industry. 

Omas won this contract thanks to the many advantages that come from using its products in a new milling plant:

  • Leonardo, the world’s only roller mill able to save the milling plant up to 70% energy.
  • Creation of a refinement section with smooth rollers, 300 mm in diameter, for the production of fine flour.
  • Giotto wheat steriliser able to guarantee the extraction of sanitised flour of the highest quality thanks to the reduction of ash and the bacterial load in the wheat.
  • Innovative Galileo plansifter, designed to avoid the dew point and as a result, the condensation that comes from process water.
  • Installation of the Michelangelo purifier which, thanks to a static extraction chamber, guarantees excellent wheat calibration and cleaning.
  • 24-month warranty from the start-up date for all machines “Made in Italy” by Omas.


The agreement for the creation of the plant, to be installed in an existing building, provides for the whole project to be completed by Omas but installed by a local firm. 

In the interests of progressing relations with the current supplier, the electrical panels and automation software for the plant will also be executed in situ. 

The agreement provides for the shipment of the machinery, directly to Samara no more than 6 months from the start of the project. 

The refurbishment of the soft wheat section at the Samarskye Melnizy plant is a great result for Omas, which is proud at being chosen from such serious competition.
