    Global distribution and after-sales care; Adelphi in Africa

  • The Challenge


    OVH Energy Marketing have a strong and growing presence in Africa, supplying to a broad customer base in the industrial, automotive, aviation and manufacturing, as well as turbine and marine sectors. They have three lubricant blending plants in Nigeria.

    With OVH Energy experiencing significant growth, the need to increase capacity and upgrade their Lube Oil filling plant was urgent. They needed a turnkey solution, but did not want the hassle of dealing with multiple suppliers.

    The Solution

    The Adelphi Masterfil System F-600 flowmeter filler was incorporated into a complete turnkey line, alongside a semi-automatic capping unit and a fully-automatic Sovereign labeller, delivered through a seamless collaboration.

    “Simple in operation, but exceptional filling efficiency and capacity”.

    Complete After-Sales Support

    OVH Energy were already in possession of a Masterfil filling line (they purchased a complete filling line back in 2015, which included a Multifil 5L automatic filler and Mastercap capper). When commenting on the decision to use Adelphi Masterfil machinery again for this new project, OVH’s Operations Manager Mohammad Dahiru said that the high level of aftersales support received previously was a key factor – “as fast and efficient as ever!”

    Turnkey Project Management


    The purchase of turnkey machinery lines can be a lengthy process, requiring sign off at several stages, but Mr Dahiru described this collaboration as “always focused on the specification and intent on pinpointing our exact requirements”. OVH Energy were saved from the burden of dealing with multiple suppliers.

  • World-Leading Innovation

    Mr Dahiru said “there were a number of factors which influenced our decision to buy Adelphi Masterfil’s machinery again. The machine technology of the new System F fillers, the design of Masterfil’s equipment, and the durability of the machines. Adelphi Masterfil deliver on all of this”.

    The System F-600 was manufactured for OVH Energy with a remote nozzle, providing the flexibility to fill not only 25L kegs on a conveyor, but also 200L drums on a pallet, which of course would be too large for the conveyor.

    With the machines in constant use running eight hours a day, five days a week, Mr Dahiru advised it was crucial to install machines which “were simple in operation, but offered exceptional filling efficiency and capacity”. Adelphi Masterfil’s System F-600 ensures exceptional accuracy levels of ±0.15%, to minimise costly product wastage.

    Global Presence

    Adelphi Masterfil have a large global presence in the lube oil market, working with many oil and petroleum organisations over Africa, the Middle East and the Far East, with agency representation in place in many countries. OVH Energy were introduced to Adelphi Masterfil through Akhigbe Itua of Itua Pack, who represent Adelphi Masterfil in the Nigerian market.
