The Milchwerke Mittelelbe GmbH dairy plant turns up to 350,000 tonnes of milk per year into premium quality foodstuffs such as baby food, milkshakes and speciality powders using 14 spray tower plants plus other modern production, bottling and packaging facilities.
Modern and efficient energy supply concept for the dairy industry.
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.
Development and expansion of a cutting-edge energy concept.
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.
