Our client manufactures and supplies a wide range of ingredients for food products. Its new production site will support the business in meeting growing customer demand, particularly for snacks and beverages across Indonesia and South East Asia.

Occupying nearly 5 hectares, the new plant consists of operations such as dry blending, liquid compounding and spray drying for manufacturing many different flavours. It has on-site wastewater treatment and is designed to meet our client’s strategic sustainability ambitions, achieving new standards in reduced consumption of energy and water, with significantly lower CO2 emissions and no waste to landfill.

Optimal utility process design supports efficient site operations

Royal HaskoningDHV process engineering team was contracted to design the utility system supporting plant operations. This includes the supply of energy, water, hot water, steam and the generation and distribution of compressed air. We are also responsible for the chemical storage system, checking the hydraulics, and sizing the line and equipment. We have prepared the process flow, piping and instrumentation diagrams as well as specifications for all the mechanical equipment, such as packages for compressed air, boiler, water treatment, reverse osmosis, UV-steriliser and more.

On a complex site, optimal connections between process areas and utility installations are key for efficient site operations. To achieve this, we maintained a clear overview of the entire site while ensuring close multi-disciplinary coordination for each installation. Our cloud-based construction management platform, BIM 360, brought together input from disciplines including architecture, civil structure, building services and process models into a single environment, enabling clashes and issues to be detected and addressed at a very early stage.
