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;
- 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
