APOLLO PROJECTS A FIRST Apollo Projects has diverse experience within the dairy sector, including a highly specialised knowledge of the latest technologies and design solutions. www.foodtechnology.co.nz 19 and advanced experience in food safety and quality, which matches well with what we advocate.” Zhu says no other multinational dairy company in China has a local milk pool to draw from, so Fonterra is in an advantageous position. “This milestone with Hema is a sign of things to come and indicates that our push to shift more of our local milk into higher-yielding consumer and foodservice products is welland truly underway.” FT439 FT440 In operational plants, maintenance and upgrades are a challenge at the best of times. But when shutting down the plant costs hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost production, supplier uncertainty or - worse still - contaminated food which could damage a whole industry, innovative solutions are required. This is where Apollo Projects’ skill and knowledge comes into play. At a recent upgrade to a large dairy facility, the project brief was the re-clad of a 22m high building, without interrupting operations or compromising the hygienic integrity of the clean room environment. The innovation on this project was to minimise the manual handling onsite by the construction of an engineered winch and mono-rail system as well as a central lift. Both these additions were integral to the project. The ability to lift out full sections of 10m panel and safely transport each panel around the building, was the key innovation that made this project so successful. The project was a first, as no other milk processing facility has been re-clad whilst maintaining 24/7 operations. From dairy spray dryer technology to cold storage, UHT milk processing, cheese manufacturing, milk and butter processing, it’s Apollo’s experience that is key to delivering world-class results and working with the most suitably qualified and experienced project partners in all areas.
