Vin-Pellet Plant Won Competition for the Best Buildings and Structures Built in Ukraine in 2013

Biofuel pellet production plant – Vin-Pellet LLC (Turbov urban-type settlement, Vinnitsa region) has been honoured as the winner of the competition for the Best Buildings and Structures Built in Ukraine in 2013, which is held by the State Architecture and Construction Inspectorate of Ukraine of the Ministry of Regional Development and Construction. The company received the first prize in the Industrial Plants and Production Facilities nomination. The plant, its capacity being 150 thousand tonnes of finished products per year, was built from May 2011 to February 2013. Today the first stage of the plant with the capacity of 75 thousand tonnes has been put into operation in full. The total area of the facility’s buildings and structures is 6,929 square meters, including 3,183 square meters of production area. The facility is unique because of its logistics advantages. The production area of the plant has a convenient traffic interchange: a motor road is close and the plant has a separate railway branch line approaching its area. The facility is almost autonomous. New constructive solutions and high-quality construction materials were used for its construction.


The plant is equipped with modern Amandus Kahl (Germany) equipment, a leading world producer of process lines for such kind of enterprises. The company uses agricultural waste (straw) as raw materials for production of pellets. It is prepared and supplied on the basis of the relevant contracts with agricultural producers of neighbouring districts of Vinnitsa region.


The investments into construction of the plant’s first stage and purchase of equipment for supply of raw materials exceeded UAH 200 million. The company has more than 150 employees.


Vin-Pellet plant is a pilot project of Smart-Holding in the field of renewable energy sources. This experience is planned to be extended to other agricultural regions of the country when the government implements real programs stimulating internal consumption of alternative energy sources.
