The facility can process up to 10 metric tons of finished product per hour. It includes an on-site laboratory for quality control and 54 silos with a storage capacity of 1100 m³, said the supplier.
The factory has been designed to ensure full transparency and minimize the risk of cross-contamination of final product. Self-driving automated guided vehicles (AGVs) ensure transport of materials throughout the facility in a closed container system. Batch managed inventory and electronic records capture when employees perform specific actions such as dosing or emptying each silo, for example, said Biomin.
The facility also ticks sustainability boxes, generating power from a geothermal system and solar panels on the rooftop, said the animal nutrition company.
The premix plant was built as part of Biomin’s strategy to enter new markets.
