Slamex, which is part of Econet Group, delivers the tanks of the new washing system of Valio Haapavesi plant in September 2019.
Valio Haapavesi plant produces Valio Oltermanni cheeses, Demi- and milk powders. Cleanliness is unconditional requirement in milk processing, and the washing system cleans the process machinery of the production plant every day. The plant was found in 1965, and it has been developed with regular investments.
- The new washing system consists of seven acid-proof steel tanks with equipment. There are five different tank types, and the largest of them is 150 cubic meters by volume. The largest tank will be installed outdoors. Investment to the new washing system is part of our linear program with which we keep our production plant as front row food production plant in Finland, says the project manager of Valio Seppo Lokasaari.
The chosen supplier Slamex has a great deal of references about demanding tank deliveries. Valio Haapavesi project brings an important addition to the list in the sense of professionality and business.
- We have familiarized ourselves with detail the needs and technical starting points, which were specified in the invitation of the bid, of the customer. The delivery is significant to us, and it requires high quality knowhow in tank manufacturing. We are very excited to start the designing and manufacturing of the tanks.
