GEA brings together technologies to supply extended pasta filata cheese production line

17 November 2017

GEA has been selected to supply an extended pasta filata cheese production line for BMI in Jessen, Germany. The plant will expand BMI’s production capability of pizza cheese by around 2.5 tonnes/hr for the supply of pizza cheese in 15kg Euroblocks to industry worldwide. 

BMI (Bayerische Milchindustrie eG) brings together independent dairies and milk-supplying cooperatives to produce a variety of fresh dairy products including over 60 million tonnes of cheese every year. 

The contract with GEA is for the extension of one of its three cheese lines. The scope of supply includes the revision of the existing salt system, cooker and stretcher; two GEA CMT DMC modules; and a GEA de Klokslag brining system. The individual components will be brought together to form a continuous production line using piping, engineering and control systems. Assembly work will begin on site in January 2018 and GEA engineers will commission the project in March 2018.

BMI is currently working with GEA on another project for the production of Cheddar cheese.
