Cheese production unit, Pwllheli
A major UK investment has enabled a large scale cheese production company to expand its operating facilities, leading to a vast increase in overall capacity per annum.
The first major cheese production investment in the UK for 40 years has led to the construction of a new £6 million facility for South Caernarfon Creameries Ltd.
The cheese production unit at SCC’s Chwilog site near Pwllheli, was officially opened by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall in 2016.
McVeigh Projects Ltd supplied and installed the sites controlled environments, utilising large quantities of Hemsec Control insulated panels within a variety of internal build-ups.
2000m2 of Hemsec Control 30 panels were ordered inclusive of 100mm thick walls and 125mm thick ceiling panels which were incorporated into a 30 minute fire rated corridor.
The project also had a requirement for an extra 500m2 of 50mm thick Hemsec Control wall panels.
7 distinct areas have been created on the site; Milk processing and storage, Cream and Butter, Cheese processing, Ingredients, Plant, FLT charging & Changing rooms, all made possible by the flexibility of insulated panels.
These new additional spaces have enabled the company to increase overall capacity from 9,500 tonnes to 12,000 tonnes of cheese per annum.
