Video: Expansion in Belview


The project consists of a new 7.5 tonne/hour drying process expansion of the Glanbia Ireland Belview facility.

In order to increase capacity, a new third drier is being added at the Belview plant. The overall expansion project encompasses new:

  • Milk intakes;
  • Pasteurisers;
  • Evaporation facilities;
  • Drying facilities;
  • Bagging facilities.

In the last number of weeks, a significant milestone has been reached, as the building has reached Level 5 – which is 45m in the air. This allowed for the lifting of the large pieces of process equipment into the building, closing the roof and weather-proof the building.

The main equipment you can see being lifted are:

  • The dryer cone - 15m in diameter
  • The evaporator calandria towers - 26m tall
  • Large ductwork
  • Platforms.
