SPX Flow has received a contract worth approximately US$60 million to establish a dairy ingredients plant in Galicia, Spain.
The contract calls for SPX Flow to design and provide a completely integrated solution that maximizes return on skimmed milk by manufacturing high-value dry dairy components.
The greenfield project will have the capacity to process milk using membrane solutions for milk fractionation and drying technology to produce milk protein powders for infant formula, sports and clinical nutritional products.
The completed facility will have SPX Flow fluid handling components and process technologies including valves, pumps, heat exchangers, homogenizers, separators and mixers.
The company is offering its customer a comprehensive aftermarket support solution as this new plant moves from concept into full commercial production.
Work on the project will commence immediately and it is anticipated the plant will begin operating in early 2020.
