Core Tip: SPX, a US-based technology provider, has been awarded a contract worth more than $30m from ArNoCo, a joint venture between DMK and Arla Food Ingredients, to install a lactose processing system for a new cheese plant in Germany.

The contract has been awarded to SPX's flow technology segment.

Under the agreement, SPX will provide a complete lactose processing system, including sanitary membrane plants, for the large-scale production of whey protein concentrate (WPC) at the cheese plant.

The lactose processing system will feature membranes, evaporation and drying equipment from SPX's Anhydro and APV product lines. The system will include new process technology for the production of high-quality, high-yield lactose powder.

SPX Flow Technology Denmark will provide engineering, equipment and project implementation oversight.

SPX Flow Technology segment president Don Canterna said that while whey was previously regarded as a disposable by-product of cheese-making, it is increasingly utilized throughout the food industry as a source of highly nutritious ingredients for other dairy and food products.

"We look forward to working closely with ArNoCo to assist them in establishing their new state-of-the-art whey protein concentrate production facility in Germany," Canterna added.

In 2011, ArNoCo announced its plans to buy approximately 700,000 tons of whey per year from DMK and convert it into WPC and lactose at the new plant in Germany. The WPC would then be dried at Arla Foods' plant in Denmark, and the resulting products marketed, sold and distributed globally to food manufacturers by Arla Foods Ingredients.
