Kiwi Cooperative Dairies Ltd,
Skim milk permeate harvesting
Process Engineering/Project Management on a turnkey basis
Install permeate silos, new valve manifolds and pumps to cope with
higher milk permeate volumes. Project manage the installation of
an RO plant for milk permeate concentration. Engineer services requirements
for the RO plant.
The existing permeate manifold was not installed in a layout which
reduced dead-legs and allowed easy maintenance. Space for the silos
also required that the other pieces of plant had to be relocated.
A tight time frame would mean that some of the plant would have
to be running before the silos were delivered. An RO plant supplied
by Tetra Pak NZ Ltd had to be installed into an existing evaporator
hall. Services and reallocated product storage were required to
be prepared in conjunction with the RO plant.
Techo immediately booked workshop space for the silos, realising
the tight timeframe and the demands of other dairy companies. To
maximise the amount of work in the required time, the project was
divided into a number of areas that were assigned to local, competent
contractors. Plant was prioritised to be completed in time to match
Kiwi production plans.
Client requirements achieved on time and within budget.
- 2 silos, disorganised manifolds
- 4 silos, organised manifolds
