Feasibility engineering preliminary to an industrial transfer of a seed crushing unit, oil conditioning and associated liquid and solid storage.

Location : Pont-Saint-Esprit, Gard FRANCE
Project Phase : Feasibility study (Master Plan)
Project Duration : 4 months

The oil mill Emile Noel started as a family business in the 1920 and became the EMILE group in 2018 and now offers a range of products from the oilseed sector: organic vegetable edible oils, vinegars and cosmetics.

Located in Pont-Saint-Esprit, the oil mill EMILE NOEL is an important player in the French organic oil market. The company wanted to anticipate and prepare its future evolution by transferring its presses located on site in a very old building to a new facility. The transfer of the presses led to the general redevelopment of the site. For this purpose, the Company preferred to rely on the services of industrial engineering to complete and confirm the upstream architectural studies.

Studies :

  • Sizing of seed and oil storage facilities
  • Process diagrams and diagrams
  • Proposal of 2 locations (1 in existing building, 1 in new building):
    • Staff flows
    • Material flow (no crossing of certain flows)
    • Maintainability
    • Possibility of evolution towards automated storage
    • Integration of supplier packages: new turnkey storage and new turnkey crushing lines
  • Justification note of the engineering choices and descriptions of the planned lots: process (equipment), building (covered enclosure), light work and HVAC
  • Electrical power assessment and associated architecture
  • Planning

Lots concerned :

  • Presses
  • Associated utilities (steam, compressed air, hot and cold water)
  • Seed storage
  • Oil storage
  • Building and light work
  • Control room
  • Tooling stores
  • Receiving and shipping stores
  • Storage of raw materials and finished products (bulk silos, big-bags, drums)
  • Parking
  • Heavy roads with turning areas

Other EMDELEN services :

  • Technical meetings with the architect and the project owner
  • Technical meetings with suppliers (storage and pressing lines)
  • Studies of utilities, all fluids, electricity Strong and weak currents, computer networks

Total amount of the project :

Range A < €10 million
Range B: between €10 and €20 million
Range C: between €20 and €50 million
