Luanda, Angola – About two years ago the Lebanese company Sanabel Group Industrial S.A. decides to enter the milling sector relying on Ocrim for the construction of its first high-tech hard wheat plant in the Angola’s capital and main city, a country which has seen an important expansion of milling capacity in the last five years and a growing consumption of flour locally.

A few months after testing, we are proud to be able to share the news. The project was carried out during the pandemic, despite the limitations and difficulties of the period.

Going into detail, it concerns the construction of a 350 T/24h hard wheat greenfield plant for obtaining soft and hard wheat flour. The project includes a latest generation cleaning section, oriented towards energy and food safety; the milling section, on the other hand, is made up of single and double deck rollermills, on the main passages, to optimize the structure’s food print.

The plant is managed through the Ocrim automation system to facilitate its operations and ensure maximum flexibility in plant management. It is completed with a finished product storage silo with automated Paglierani bagging lines.

“When thinking of Angola, often the first thing that comes to people’s mind is the oil industry. However, Angola may soon be known as an agricultural powerhouse on the African continent as well. We are honored to have been chosen for this project and to be able to return to making our technological contribution to this country after more than 20 years”, stated Alberto Antolini, Ocrim CEO.
