Planning, delivery and assembly of the entire technical equipment and process control: BDW Feedmill Systems, based in Calveslage, and its subsidiary from Belgorod (Russia) have now contributed the essential components for the construction of a state-of-the-art compound feed plant. The order is worth 6.8 million €. "Mustang Nutrition Technology", the leading Russian manufacturer of concentrates and feed additives for farm animals, had brought Calveslager to the side to build its new plant in Stupino. The city with around 66,000 inhabitants is located around 90 kilometers south of Moscow.

The portfolio in “one of the most modern compound feed plants in Europe”, says Viktor Dymshyts, Sales Manager at BDW Feedmill Systems, includes products for cattle, pigs and poultry. In the future, around 90,000 tonnes of milk replacer, concentrates, feed and feed additives and around 20,000 tonnes of premixes (early animal nutrition) will be produced here every year. Mustang has invested a total of 21 million euros. In the factory, the raw materials are stored in 16 dosing cells, 30 medium-component silos and 34 micro-component containers. There are 48 manual dosing units for this purpose. All the components required for the feed are checked by means of a barcode scanner before addition and dosed on high-resolution scales.

The entire plant is operated and monitored fully automatically via a central process control system - right through to packaging and loading. Even sample management - delivered raw materials - is fully automated. 13 storage silos for grain and meal as well as a flat storage facility were added to the actual animal food production. Dymshyts reports that the plant complies with the highest standards of contamination, dosing accuracy and mixing quality at all production levels. Mixing ratios of 1: 100,000 and lower are possible.

The plant is certified according to international standards. The new building started in September 2017. Right from the start, alongside craftsmen from the Russian subsidiary, the technicians from Calveslage were active here. After commissioning last September, the plant was finally officially opened at the end of January with the handover of the keys by the managing director Heinrich Wolking to the owner of Mustang Alexey Martynenko.
