In 2018, Evrovneshtorg (EVT) opened a new grain port terminal in Mykolayiv, Ukraine. Utilizing their business experience in supermarkets and the food industry EVT expanded their portfolio to include grain processing. This diversification has connected their experience in delivering goods direct to consumers to now include the transport of grains from the top of the food supply. Bordering the Black Sea, the terminal serves as a strategic terminal for Ukraine’s grain trade, connecting the regions main traffic and rail routes to the port. Moving important commodities such as maize and cereals, the terminal saw over 1.5 million mt. of cargo in 2019.
With growing traffic and high demand the terminal has expanded its facility, in March 2020, EVT contracted AGI to supply 20 grain silos with a combined capacity of 124,725 mt. The completed port facility will have an overall storage capacity of 270,000 mt. and will serve as an integral facility for the region.
Understanding the importance of food handling, EVT wanted their commodities moved gently and efficiently. With that in mind, AGI introduced EVT to the benefits of enclosed belt conveyors. AGI Hi Roller technology delivers higher capacities and ensures a gentle handling of grain. AGI Hi Roller installed nine conveyors for EVT, used both for filling and reclaiming grain. The 925 meters of conveyors operate at 1,000 mt/hour. Additionally, AGI provided EVT with bin sweeps each with a capacity off 270 mt/h from their AGI Hutchinson division.
With over 40 years of experience, AGI Hi Roller is the leader in design and manufacturing of enclosed belts. Today AGI Hi Roller has over 10,000 conveyors installed in port facilities and grain terminals around the world. What makes AGI Hi Roller the industry leader in enclosed belt technology is their self-reloading tail section. All dust, debris or in some cases spilled product, is returned to the tail section by the returning belt and then diverted by a V-Plow installed within. The product is deflected to the rotating reloading flippers located at the outer ends of the tail pulley. Additional design features include
