GEA to build the largest infant formula plant in China for Junlebao Dairy
Date 01.31.2019 | Category: News
The new plant, which is being built adjacent to the one completed in 2016, is a turnkey project for GEA, which includes supplying wet mixing, evaporation, drying and downstream powder handling. GEA is also responsible for the plant design, project execution, installation & commissioning and automation. Central to the plant will be the GEA MSD-1600 multi-stage spray dryer, one of the world’s most advanced dryers – combining spray and fluid-bed drying in a three-stage drying process. The GEA MSD drying tower produces formula powder products exactly to customer specifications and achieves an excellent agglomeration effect.
Junlebao chose GEA for this major project given the companies had worked together in 2016 on a project with a similar scope and were extremely satisfied with GEA’s performance on the project and subsequently with the capacity and operational stability of the plant and the world-class quality of the end products.
Said Leon Han, Head of Dairy Sales – Greater China at GEA: “We’ve worked very closely with Junlebao for years and it has been a real pleasure to see the success the plant we built for the company two years ago has had,” he said. “The new plant will be the largest of its kind in China and we are delighted to be working with Junlebao again on this exciting project.”
