Food Production Capacity Review to Manufacturing Facility

By Protolan
Food Production Capacity Review to Manufacturing Facility – Poland
The Project

Protolan implemented a food production capacity review and delivered Project Management and Project Engineering support to provide an extension to an existing manufacturing facility in Poland. This included the design, installation and commissioning of new Process Kitchen (sauce manufacturing plant) and High-Speed Filling/Packing Line. (Although inherently involved in other areas of the project, our role was focused around the Filling/Packing Line.)

The Challenge

The scope of the project was to design and deliver a new High-Speed Bottle Filling and Packing Line incorporating the latest technology and automation.

Food Production Capacity Increase to Manufacturing Facility - Poland

The project consisted of an extension of an existing manufacturing facility, installation of all new services, installation of a new Process kitchen and development and installation of a new high-speed filling and packaging line.

The high-speed filling and packaging line included a preform handling and bottle blowing system as well as a high-speed bottle filler. Protolan were involved in the

entire project, but with specific emphasis for our skills to deliver the filling and packaging lines. The project was completed entirely overseas at the manufacturing site in Poland. There was a major requirement to rapidly build our knowledge of Polish culture, regulations and working environment.

Another major concern was to ensure that the development of the process line was integrated into the Project to ensure alignment with building extension works and Process Kitchen installation.

Delivering Success

This project was challenging and a major success.

Protolan worked closely with the Polish site team and wider project delivery team, integrating across all work streams and project delivery teams. This ensured consistent communication in an environment where language and culture could have been a barrier.
