The spray dryer in the new plant will be the largest dairy spray dryer ever built with a capacity of 30 t per hour of whole milk powder equivalent to more than 4.4. million l per day of milk. The plant will be the seventh green-field plant that GEA has supplied in New Zealand over the past five years.

“This order proves the high degree of trust of important global leading food producers in the reliable GEA process technology”, explained Jürg Oleas, CEO of GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft.
