New Arla site laps up the attention

New Arla site laps up the attention

On a 115-acre site on the outskirts of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, a new £150m Arla Foods site is setting new standards when it comes to dairy processing. Not only is the new dairy the largest fresh milk processing facility in Europe, it will also be one of the most environmentally efficient milk processing plants in the world. When it is fully operational the dairy will employ 700 people and will be capable of packaging up to 1.0 billion litres of milk annually.

Such an important development demanded only the best and the volume of milk to be moved around the site and processed means pumps play a vital role. Recognising this, Grundfos Pumps has worked closely with N G Bailey - which provided all the M&E solutions - from the outset to supply the entire pump solution.

The solution was delivered in two phases. The first phase saw the main services delivered in pre-fabricated modular sections that were built at NG Bailey’s prefabrication plant. These modules were then bolted together to form a 204m corridor at the site and contain all the process piped services, including a wide range of Grundfos pumps that supply the chilled water, low temperature hot water heating plus a range of other circuits and services.

The second phase saw the delivery to the 90m by 60m energy centre of 14 heavy duty plant skids – complete with Grundfos pump solutions - which were also built offsite using innovative manufacturing techniques and 3D modelling. In total Grundfos supplied 90 pump solutions that included circulators, in-line centrifugal pumps, end suction multi-purpose pumps and a total of 7 energy efficient Grundfos Hydro MPC-E booster sets – so vital in this type of operation.

Grundfos have worked with Arla Foods in the UK for many years and understands its exacting requirements and the importance of assisting to maintain a 24/7 operation under stringent hygiene conditions.
