The development of a ventilation system for storing beets in piles with a capacity of 20000 tons.


“Prodimex” Group is a Russian food producer and the country’s largest manufacturer of white sugar.


To develop a ventilation system so as to increase beet storage life by two months.

To cover the cost of the project within a year through savings on the ventilation system.

As the beets are stored in the open field, the technical equipment must function efficiently in all weather conditions.


The technical equipment was specially designed and fabricated to be used in field conditions.

Storage conditions are automatically maintained, with the option of remote system operation.

The prime cost of the system was reduced through the impressive energy efficiencies achieved under further operation.

Distinguishing features

Operational stages:

  • Project development
  • Purchase of equipment and materials
  • Delivery
  • Installation
  • Start-up and adjustment operations

Design engineers and the construction department were in charge of the project, as well as Agrovent specialists in the area of ventilation equipment.

Environmental-climactic conditions were taken into account by the Agrovent specialists in working on the design. The use of ventilation equipment reduces the risks of rotting and disease and extends the storage life of sugar beets by two months.
