Glanbia Belview Expansion is well underway

Glanbia's Project Topaz in Ireland involves a 7.5 tonne/hour drying process expansion of the Glanbia Ingredients Belview facility.

The expansion is built to Infant Formula quality standards. This encompasses new milk intakes, pasteurisers, evaporation, drying and bagging facilities.

In the past few weeks, a significant milestone has been reached as the building has reached Level 5, 45m in the air. This allowed for the lifting of the large pieces of process equipment into the building, which allows us to close the roof and weather-proof the building.

The main equipment you can see being lifted includes the dryer cone, which is 15m in diameter, the evaporator calandria towers, which are 26m tall, large ductwork and platforms.
