GEA to construct milk processing plant

In a greenfield operation in New Zealand, process systems supplier GEA Process Engineering has secured an order worth more than NZD35m (£16m) for the delivery of a full milk processing plant to dairy company Miraka.

The plant, which is scheduled for operation in August 2011, will be located near the town of Taupo and will have a full processing line, including a milk reception area, standardising, evaporator, spray-drying facility and powder storage bins.

The order also includes the construction of the building that will house the complete processing line.
