Satake has received an order for rice milling and seeds processing equipment from the Turkmenistan government by means of a local enterprise. It has been shipped during March 2015, and will start to be commissioned in July. It is the first order from the country.
Turkmenistan, a republic located in the southwest of central Asia, became independent from the former Soviet Union in 1991. The government has since concentrated on increasing the yield from grains and improving the efficiency of its rice milling industry. In this regard they have set about plans to build a new rice milling and seeds processing infrastructure.
During the October of 2014, Satake received an order for its rice milling equipment from the national government by means of both a locally based enterprise and a Turkish company. The order for the seeds processing equipment soon followed in January 2015. This is the first order from Turkmenistan for Satake equipment, there being no previous history of trading with the country. The equipment supplied consists of approximately 30 machines including vertical rice whiteners, rice polishers and optical sorters for the rice milling plant. It also includes a further 6 machines including thickness graders and optical sorters for the seeds processing plant.
The equipment has since been shipped in March 2015, and commissioning will begin in July after completion of the plant building. By means of this order, Satake starts to think about more aggressive business operations in the regions of central Asia.
