Much more whey: Fonterra successfully increased capacity at Heerenveen plant

To accommodate whey from the new Mozzarella production at Royal Aware in Heerenveen, the Netherlands, Fonterra’s European plant, located right next to the Royal Aware cheese factory, needed to increase capacity. With a €10 million investment, a new building was built on top of the existing production by Jorritsma, which now houses a membrane filtration plant supplied by ALPMA.

The heart of the Fonterra project is a new ALPMA RO HighTS plant with integrated RO Plant with Polisher, designed for two different production configurations: a feed flow of 6% to 30% d.s.% and a feed flow of 6% to 9% d.s.%. Both in capacities that meet the volumes of Mozzarella whey supplied by Royal Aware.
