For the cooperative Luxemburger Saatbau-Genossenschaft (LSG), SCE completed the construction of a silo installation with a total storage capacity of 5,940 cubic metres at the beginning of this year. LSG had to build a new facility because its existing site in the centre of Mersch could no longer remain in operation.
LSG produces seeds and began the search for a specialised partner for the construction of its new installation. SCE had already constructed seed storage infrastructure for various customers and has built up a solid reputation for this particular application. The high-quality interior finish of SCE’s silos ensures that nothing is left behind during emptying – crucial for seed silos.
The automated installation is a huge leap forwards for LSG, where the seeds were previously stored in mainly wooden crates. The facility took little more than three and a half months to build, and SCE in fact completed the work three weeks earlier than anticipated.
LSG’s new silo is one of the tallest ever built by SCE (27.5 metres straight wall height), enabling considerable storage capacity to be fitted into a limited area.
