The Finmalt project, the challenge of creating an iconic malting plant

Vicking Malt´s latest project has become a reference for both, the finnish company and Symaga, firstly due to its dimension and secondly because of being the storage plant for which Symaga has manufactured the most different kinds of hopper silos up to the current date. Our 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, 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 to 2.649 m3, 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. Its malts come from the purest fields of Northern Europe and are distributed to many breweries all around the world for crafting unique beers.

Such a broad variety of silos and malts comes together in a synergy between both companies shown in the latest #finmaltproject malting plant located in Lahti, in the south of Finland and near the capital Helsinki.

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 Finish 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.
