JWCI Ltd’s involvement at the Arla Super Dairy increases thanks to a continued working relationship with Global leader SPX. Chosen by SPX, Staffordshire based process engineers JWCI Ltd, are spearheading work on their pipework projects during the second phase at the super dairy in Aylesbury, UK.
Work on the Arla super dairy started in 2012 – JWCI was the first of several teams on site in January 2013 completing works on chemical distribution plant and pipe work for Global company Ecolab. During this time they worked alongside SPX (formerly APV) who were responsible for all the process plant and pipe work throughout the whole factory.
During Phase 1 at the plant, JWCI, working alongside German and Spanish contractors, completed works on all chemical distribution plant and pipework throughout the factory.
Now fully operational the Arla super dairy implemented phase 2 of site expansion which was awarded to Global firm SPX to introduce additional capacity and improve flexibility.
JWCI was again on site at Aylesbury in December 2014, this time working for Ecolab UK on Phase 2 of the Chemical Installation.
With approximately $5 billion in annual revenue, US based SPX is a multi-industry manufacturing leader with operations in more than 35 countries and over 14,000 employees worldwide. SPX solutions play a vital role in helping food and beverage producers increase their capacity to more efficiently deliver greater quantities of safer, higher quality products. JWCI Ltd began work for the SPX contract in April 2015 after a successful tender application, and with their enviable reputation and previous history working with Ecolab and Arla on other sites, JWCI was an obvious choice.
The installation required multiple process break-ins under high care conditions to be planned into the work. Due to the plant being operational it was essential for recognised good hygienic installation practice and compliance with Arla hygiene standards – and SPX knew that this would be of no concern to JWCI who have worked under these stringent conditions before.
Second phase projects for SPX at Aylesbury included the installation of plant and interconnecting pipe work associated with the following: finished milk, cream ageing, Cravendale pasteuriser, Cravendale micro filter plant and Cravendale cream.
Having worked in the food industry for many years JWCI has an enviable reputation in the sector and continues to work alongside some of the largest names in the industry.
