People who have chosen WACAPOL as their palm oil mill supplier:
Volta Red - Ghana
In 2013/14 Volta Red invested in 112 hectares of mature palms, 2,050 hectares of recently planted palms and 4,250 hectares of land potentially suitable for oil palm plantation in Kadjebi District, Volta Region, Ghana.
In addition, the area has a number of small-holders who have planted to oil palm under the Ghanaian Government’s Presidential Special Initiative, without any access to efficient milling facilities.
In the second quarter of 2013, we installed a WACAPOL 1.0 tonnes per hour CPO Mill to serve the mature plantation and local small-holders. In the fourth quarter of 2014, we upgraded the mill to 2.0 tonnes per hour, as the new plantation started to bear fruit.
Volta Red will ultimately have to invest in a large-scale industrial mill of 10.0 tonnes per hour or greater capacity, but in the meantime it has the flexibility of doing so via a further upgrade to 4.0 tonnes per hour.

Weppa Farm - Nigeria
Weppa is a mixed-farm developed in association with the local Weppa community on land owned by the Leventis Foundation, in Edo Sate, Nigeria, with around 500 hectares planted to oil palm of mixed age, hitherto served by an artisan mill.
In the first quarter of 2015, we installed a WACAPOL 1.0 tonnes per hour CPO Mill to serve the established and maturing palms.
As yields increase and further land is planted to oil palm, Weppa Farms plans both to upgrade to 2.0 and, ultimately, 4.0 tonnes per hour.

ZamPalm - Zambia
ZamPalm, subsidiary of Zambeef plc, has over 2,100 hectares of recently planted oil palm, which is expected to increase dramatically as the company develops the full 20,100 hectares of the plantation in coming years.
In the fourth quarter of 2014, we installed a WACAPOL 2.0 tonnes per hour CPO Mill to serve the young plantation.
ZamPalm will ultimately have to invest in a large-scale industrial mill of 10.0 tonnes per hour or greater capacity, but in the meantime it has the flexibility of doing so via an upgrade to 4.0 tonnes per hour.
