LGPM To Start Work On Ridley Corporation’s New Tasmanian Extrusion Plant

Ridley has given the green light to LGPM to participate in the building of their Extrusion plant at Westbury, Tasmania.

LGPM and Ridley Corporation Ltd have recently entered into an agreement for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the intake system and storage silos for raw grain and meals. Additionally, the project will include a macro-ingredient dosing system and bulk bag filling system for the new aqua feed mill located at Westbury, Tasmania.

The Westbury mill will supply markets in Tasmania and New Zealand and is expected to produce about 50,000 tons of aquaculture feed per year.

LGPM’s National Sales Manager, Mark Hawes, said, “We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to partner in the construction of Ridley’s first extrusion plant in Tasmania.”

The scope of supply includes the intake with integrated dust extraction and cleaning, storage silos and a finished product filling station.  Also included are associated structural steel and mechanical conveying systems to enable plant operation.

The macro ingredient system will include discharge stations and dosing screws, feeding into weighing hoppers capable of accurately dosing batches of macro ingredients.

Over the past 20 years, LGPM has been working closely with Ridley, but this unique project will allow us to create a truly innovative, technologically advanced, quality solution that will satisfy Ridley’s high expectations.
