Friday, 27 February, 2015

SPX’s Flow Food and Beverage business has been awarded the contract to design and install a new processing system for Arla Foods’ fresh milk dairy - the largest of its kind in the world.

The Aylesbury, UK, site officially opened in May 2014 and once SPX has completed the project, it will be capable of producing up to 240,000 litres per hour and 1 billion litres per year.

In 2011, SPX was engaged to provide a full-line, customised dairy processing system capable of producing 650 million litres of fresh milk each year for the Aylesbury plant.

“The Arla plant in Aylesbury features some of our most sophisticated, highly automated and energy-efficient dairy processing systems, which have helped make it not only one of the world’s largest dairy facilities, but quite possibly the world’s most sustainable dairy plant,” said Marc Michael, president, SPX Flow Food and Beverage.

“The plant features numerous advanced technology solutions combined with a fully integrated and automated SPX system for controlling all of the plant’s floor equipment.”

SPX anticipates that the project will be completed by late 2015.
