Edible Oil Refinery Upgrade
The goal was upgrade of sun flower oil refinery units (neutralization, bleaching, winterization, deodorization, splitting, de-gumming) from 200 TPD to 400 TBD. Project main challenge involved reinforcing refinery building, equipment layout and installation works while existing refinery was operational. Other objectives involved minimizing refinery shut-down periods for tie-in execution. LUDAN scope: project engineering & coordination; complete multidisciplinary design; procurement management and expediting; construction management; plant operation during test run period.

Food Ingredients and Additives
ADM - Amylum – Extension Plant ( On Going)
Within the project expansion, different capacities of final products have to be added mainly focusing on liquid products such as dextrose, high fructose, glucose, crystalline dextrose, and ethanol.Within the project expansion, different capacities of final products will be added mainly focusing on liquid products such as dextrose, high fructose, glucose, crystalline dextrose, and ethanol. Project is building mainly as brown field but some parts will be treated as green field such as: Ethanol Plant, Feed House (Fiber and Germ dewatering and drying), Gluten House (gluten dewatering and drying), and installation of CHP (Gas turbine) and boilers. Ludan is developing full design by: maintaining engineering progress in line with the realization plan and by thorough regular risk assessments and thus preventing surprises during execution; Minimizing downtime during execution phase so that production can run simultaneous to construction activities; comply with all applicable Bulgarian and EU regulations and standards for all design in order to ensure proper performance and quality; Developing a project with a strong focus on safety.
In parallel with detailed design activities, Ludan will support Amylum during Permitting process by providing necessary technical documentation, part of future Detail Engineering Study to facilitate the issue of EIA process and Building Permit. Documentation for approvals from various authorities or studies (including Environmental Impact Assessment)
