Anhydro has recently won an order to supply the Chemtex Group in Italy with four large spray-drying plants for animal feed powder production in Venezuela. The combined production facility will have a capacity of 460t per day of powder.
The Chemtex Group is a global engineering company with headquarter in Italy, and operates all over the world. In Venezuela the Chemtex Group is engaged in The Fodder Yeast project, which is a project aimed at building a new production facility for animal feed powder. Recently Chemtex has signed an agreement with Anhydro for the delivery of four complete animal feed powder production plants, which is a key element of The Fodder Yeast project.
The order includes four spray-drying plants and all related services. The plants are designed with complete automatic control systems and based on Anhydro’s state of the art technology, the Anhydro CSD dryer.
“The reasons for us being selected as the winning bidder on this project were our ability to meet Chemtex requirements, as well as the ability to cooperate on the special contractual conditions connected to this overall project,” said Michael Christensen, sales manager at Anhydro.
He explained that Anhydros technical expertise and experience within the application were other key elements in Chemtex’s final decision. “I know that our team was selected for a number of reasons, among others our ability to provide a fast and professional solution, the ability to provide a complete solution design, building, installation and commissioning of the plant.”
He adds that he was told that Anhydros high degree of flexibility and professionalism during the bidding phase was key to Chemtex Group selecting Anhydro.
Chemtex and The Fodder Yeast project is one of the biggest customer wins for Anhydro this year.
“I am very happy that we won The Fodder Yeast project, as it is a very important order for Anhydro. The deal clearly shows how the expertise we have built up over the years in the spray drier area is paying off,” explained Anhydro director Søren S Rasmussen.
