Viking Malt’s latest ‘Finmalt project’ works towards constructing ultramodern malting plant

The Finmalt project

Viking Malt´s latest project has become a reference for both the Finnish company and Symaga, due to its dimension and by being the storage plant for which Symaga has manufactured the different kinds of hopper silos up to the current date

The company has supplied Bühler with a total number of 78 silos out of 15 different sorts of metal hopper silos. This specific project highlights the importance of offering in our product portfolio a wide range of hopper silos, thus enabling us to position ourselves in the market as one of the leading producers of hopper silos by offering the most various storage capacities, ranging from 5-2.649 sq m, including three different hopper angles where to choose from: 45, 60 and 66°.

Viking malt defines itself as the world´s leading malting company of special malts, with its malts coming from the purest fields of Northern Europe and distributed to numerous breweries around the world for crafting unique beers.

The new plant means a great challenge for Viking Malt. Nevertheless, it has become one of the largest investments in the food and beverage sector of the Finnish industry in the recent years, a space where around 40 companies work together towards building a state of the art malting plant with the latest cutting edge technology at all production levels. In terms of human resources, the challenge consists of putting in place a whole new working procedure for its 200 future employees.

Symaga is proud to be working ‘hands on’ on this great project, together with Bühler and is looking forward to being part of the next challenge in the storage industry.
