The storage project for the Japanese multinational Yanmar is an example of Symaga versatility. The silo plant to store premium Japonica rice, a delicate grain with a unique texture, has demanded the development of tailor-made technical solutions.

Symaga has designed a new insulation for the silo roof and pre-lacquered galvanised steel sectors for the cylinder I order to create an air chamber for extra insulation. An interior catwalk and inside ladder has been installed to improve access to the silo.

The ventilation system has been developed for this project in order to increase ventilation that this kind of rice requires. A full aeration floor has been installed to allow a better airflow, with a special duct system in the upper parts of the silo.

Symaga said that this project is in line with the company’s aim to expand in international marketplaces. It brings Japan to the list of the reference countries, a highly sophisticated market with very special storage requirements. Symaga said that it looks forward to working on future projects.
