Dairy industry

Due to the energy-intensive production processes, the energy costs in the dairy processing are a key factor for the costs of the final product. At the same time, reliability of the energy supply is an indispensable requirement for the high quality standard of this line of business.

With our sweeping expertise in the provision of heat, steam and refrigeration and with customised concepts, we provide our customers in the dairy processing industry with the required energy. We are committed to delivering clean, environmentally friendly, sustainable and economical solutions. This enables us to reduce your carbon footprint and help secure the location. Thanks to our many years of experience, we succeed in optimally utilising the complex legal and commercially-driven framework conditions, thereby providing you with further advantages.

The customised GETEC energy solution

Modern and efficient energy supply concept for the dairy industry.

The challenge

Upgrade of the existing boiler house that supplies steam for the dairy, under continuous operation and without interruption. 

The goal

The coverage of the high requirements for heat and power at the Uelzen location was to be realised in an economically viable fashion as compared to the separate generation of heat in the existing boiler system as well as compared to the external acquisition of power. At the same time, it was essential to minimise the risks associated with the transition toward renewable energies, such as grid fluctuations and total loss of power.

Our solution

GETEC set up a cogeneration power plant with two CHP units and a waste heat recovery boiler. The system is completed with the new construction of two natural gas boilers (shell boiler), which replace two outdated existing boilers. In addition, GETEC is supporting Uelzena’s power supply by implementing a smart load management system.

The customised GETEC energy solution

Modern and efficient energy supply concept for the dairy industry.

The challenge

Additional energy is required for the production systems of the dairy works due to an expansion in the production and the associated increased energy requirements. A new and efficient energy supply concept has to be designed and realised for this purpose.

The goal

Development and expansion of a cutting-edge energy concept.

Our solution

Within the framework of a management contract, initially GETEC constructed a steam generation plant followed by a natural gas-fired engine-based cogeneration system.
Three gas engines (CHP units) simultaneously supply heat for the drying and the various cleaning processes as well as electricity that substitutes the consumption drawn from the grid.
