In the summer of 2020, the Bevisol and Doehler boards decided to make an new multi-million pound investment at Bevisol – ‘Project Diamond’ commenced late August 2020. The objective : to build a new production facility capable of producing up to 50,000 tonnes/annum of fermented products, mainly for global export.
As well as installing 21 fermenting and storage tanks, all sitting on 2000 tonnes of concreate containing 150 tonnes of reinforcing steel, there is also a new 1200m2 process hall (No.3), which will house specialist processing equipment made in Holland and Germany. All this will be powered by a new 11,000 volt electricity supply and solar panels.
Project Diamond will go fully live in May 2021 and is creating 16 new jobs at Bevisol. Many of the building and process contractors are sourced locally, in Herefordshire.
Product will be filled into 26,000 litre-capacity, stainless steel iso-tanks and shipped by boat, taking up to 3 weeks to arrive at destination.
Executed over a short project timeline, this is a massive technical, engineering and logistical exercise.
Further updates to come as the project progresses.
