IE master plan including a hygiene and energy concept for the new construction of a dairy plant.
Today, Meiereigenossenschaft eG Viöl is one of the last independent dairy plants in Schleswig-Holstein. The food producer specialises in the production of cream and skimmed milk concentrate. As the milk production at the current location of around 100 million litres per year was reaching its limits, a growth-oriented dairy plant including biological treatment plant was built in record time. IE Food carried out a feasibility study and then took on the general planning of the new construction on the outskirts of Viöl, including the hygiene and energy concept.
Doubling the milk quantity to be processed was more than ambitious. In addition, reserves were also to be planned from the very beginning for the later expansion of the milk production. The transfer of food production from the old to the new facility of the food manufacturer was also supposed to take place in a staggered manner. Milk processing presented a whole series of technical challenges to the experts of IE Food. It requires a great deal of drinking water and generates large quantities of waste water as it is an energy intensive process. For this reason, special solutions were required. A particular challenge here was the treatment of the dairy waste water and the vapour water generated by evaporating the skimmed milk, which cannot be fed into the local treatment plant.
The success factors.
First and foremost, the in-depth knowledge of the processes involved in milk processing, the cross-sector knowledge, the market knowledge and a network of reliable partners were crucial in the selection of IE Food. The result is a new site for the production of food with an integral hygiene and building concept. This means that from now on, the product and personnel flows can be consistently separated from each other and the areas shall be easier to clean. Thanks to the consistent planning and implementation according to the tried-and-tested IE Group principle, the new construction could be completed in record time. The processing volume of the dairy plant was also more than doubled with 200,000,000 litres of milk annually.
