In August 2015 Omas Industries won a contract to build a durum wheat mill with a capacity of 150 TPD to be built in Nouakchott, capital of Mauritania.
The mill is part of a private development project to build the first integrated food hub consisting of grain storage, a milling system and pasta manufacturing plant.
The contract, for a total of 25 million euros, is an example of the perfect synergy between 3 leading Italian companies in their specific sectors: Fava, suppliers of the pasta line, Frame for the storage and handling of raw materials, and Omas for the supply of the milling line.
This is an integrated supply chain that starts with the grain to arrive at the finished pasta product, keeping control of every single stage of the process in order to guarantee top-level efficiency, minimum production costs and absolute quality of the finished product.
Omas Industries was selected to supply the durum wheat mill thanks to:
The project, a Green Field, is located in a new industrial area. The mill is envisaged to double capacity and it is installed in a new building, entirely designed and supplied by Omas Industries.
The mill automation plant will include management of the storage silos for raw materials and transport of semolina to the pasta plant, where there is a line for short pasta and one for long pasta.
The system is also complete with the possibility to bag finished products for sale on local market.
Special attention has been paid to training technical staff to manage the system and workers have attended specific courses for running the mill and pasta plant.
The whole project is an excellent example of synergy between different Italian technologies when it comes to winning new emerging markets.
