A contract worth more than $28 million to help Biocom Ltd. establish the Nesvizh Baby Food factory in the Republic of Belarus was awarded to Charlotte-based SPX Corp. Biocom expects the new baby food factory to have capacity to process 500 tons of milk per day once completed. The factory will produce liquid baby food, yogurts, cottage cheese and several milk products including ultra-high temperature, extended shelf life, pasteurized and flavored milks.
Under the terms of the contract, SPX will provide Biocom with a turnkey dairy processing system with a portfolio of SPX products that use ultrafiltration and infusion technologies. The system will include SPX equipment, including homogenizers, separators, plate and scraped surface heat exchangers, bacteria clarifiers, pumps, valves, membrane technology, extended shelf life technology with microfiltration, and ultra-high-temperature tubular infusion plants.
The factory is projected to become fully operational in either late 2015 or 2016.
