Ukraine. Vinnytsia fat-and-oil plant closed for overhaul


ViOil’s Vinnytsia fat-and-oil plant stops its operation for overhaul before the start of the new crushing season. These works are planned to be completed in less than a month. Once launched, the plant will process new-crop rapeseed. It is going to crush some 100 KMT of this oilseed in the next several months.

“Rapeseed is one of the most promising oilseeds in global vegoil production. The products of its processing – oil and meal – are in great demand both in the domestic and foreign markets. Rape oil is used not only in the food industry but also for producing technical products, in particular biodiesel,” noted Vinnytsia plant director Dmytro Chalenko.

The plant’s management is aware of the importance of overhauling and upgrading the production facilities to ensure steady, uninterrupted operation in the new season.

As a reminder, ViОil’s crushing capacity is estimated at 1.1 MMT of oilseed a year. The company is one of Ukraine’s top three vegoil producers and the leading rape oil maker. The finished products are exported to more than 50 countries.
