Leroux Lotz Industry starts up the new Sopremac lubricant manufacturing plant in Algeria.

Leroux Lotz Industry announced the delivery and start-up of a brand-new Lube Oil Blending Plant (LOBP) on behalf of the Algerian company Sopremac, part of the Amouri Group.

The plant officially went into production in January 2019. It has a total capacity of 25,000 mtpa, mainly dedicated to the production of high-performance motor oils (marketed under franchise brand Veedol) and industrial lubricants.

The service provided by Leroux Lotz Industry included the blending plant engineering and manufacturing and its tank farm design. It also included the factory automated control system. The Scada software ‘Intouch’ (Wonderware), was chosen for its performance and simplicity of implementation.

Based in Nantes (France), Leroux Lotz Industry is a subsidiary of the Altawest Group. It develops modular plants in the field of production of greases and lubricants, the regeneration of waste oils and special equipment for the oil & gas market, marine renewable energies and nuclear power.
