Sunflower Processing Plant - Fargo, N.D.
Red River Commodities
This project involved the engineering and construction management of a confection sunflower facility.
Because of the seasonal harvesting of sunflower seeds and critical need to carefully store the product prior to processing, Red River Commodities chose to store most of one year’s process needs in a large grain silo complex at the plant site.
Drying and cleaning plus aeration and temperature detection equipment were utilized in conjunction with the steel silos. The plant processing capacity was based on 30 million pounds of sunflower per year.
