CASE STUDY: Danone Nutricia Expansion
AirconMech was pleased to secure the mechanical services contract for the then €50m expansion of Danone Nutricia Babyfood manufacturing plant in Cork, Ireland. The French food manufacturer’s investment represented the largest investment the group had made in the baby nutrition division globally. The company’s extensive portfolio includes many internationally recognised household names including Activia, Actimel and Evian.
Two Danone plants based in Ireland are responsible for manufacturing baby food, with AirconMech a preferred mechanical contractor. To date, AirconMech has completed many works within the plant including stainless steel ducting, steam works and chilled water services. This expansion trebled the then current output of the plant to 100,000 tonnes of infant milk formula, to become the largest single-site producer in Europe. The scope of works for which AirconMech were contracted included an office fit out, the supply and installation of stainless steel ducting, stainless steel process pipework and chilled, steam and process water installations. The project lasted six months with completion in April 2012.
