AVEBE ter Apelkanaal - Installation new food factory
AVEBE’s DEXTAK Dextrin Factory in Ter Apelkanaal was hit by a dust explosion in 2012. Stork was contracted to dismantle and rebuild the factory. The lead time had to be kept to a minimum in order to limit production downtime as much as possible. The redesign of the factory was exploited in order to make the factory even safer. This was done by increasing nitrogen levels to such an extent that the oxygen present is insufficient for combustion or explosion.
