The construction of Northern Europe’s largest evaporation and spray drying plant is now under way at Arinco in Videbæk, Denmark.
The plant will have a capacity of 1 million kg milk per day, i.e. a doubling of Arinco’s current capacity. The new spray drying plant will be commissioned in the spring of 2004 as part of a major construction programme which includes the expansion of the warehouse, a new wet and dry mixing plant, powder silos and a fully automatic bagging line.
Part of Arla’s structural plan which was announced in June 2001, the costs of the expansion programme total approximately DKK 240 million
Arinco produces DKK 37,000 tons milk powder and a number of special products.
