Last month saw the operational start of a new large cheese plant at the largest producer of cheddar cheese in the Baltic States.

Latvian company Preilu Siers awarded CPS Damrow and CPS UK a £2.5m contract for the plant to meet its increased production requirements. Production at Preilu Siers rose by over 66% in 2004, with exports to Europe rising from 3,562t to 5,919t.

The contract comprised: five Damrow enclosed double-O cheese vats; one Wincanton draining and matting conveyor for the cheddaring process; two Wincanton towers for forming standard cheese blocks; a milk pasteurisation and standardisation line; and a cleaning-in-place (CIP) plant.

CPS Damrow also had full responsibility for the design and installation of new pipework and the valve system; the design and supply of a new control system for the process line; as well as full commissioning of the complete new production line.

Preilu Siers was formed in 1994 as a result of the privatisation of the Soviet dairy. It is a major force in the production and export of hard cheeses in Latvia and produces 21 types of dairy products, including sour cream, milk and yoghurts.
