Sunflower Extraction Plant - Riverside, N.D.
Ibberson was selected by Cargill, Inc. as engineers and construction managers for this 1,200 ton-per-day vegetable oil extraction plant.
Our biggest challenge was to complete the construction of the steel grain storage and handling portion of this huge plant in a five-month time schedule.
The storage capacity was in excess of 81,670 metric tons and included complete reception from both truck and rail, plus a complete grain drying and cleaning facility to condition the grain ahead of storage. The storage was equipped with aeration and temperature equipment.
The total factory was built in 15 months.
