Arla Foods Ltd production facility is the most environmentally friendly dairy in the world. Situated outside Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, this ambitious £150 million project succeeded in creating their zero carbon vision with the application of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology.

Spread over a floor space of 6.5 hectares, this inspirational production facility produces 1billion litres of milk per annum and utilises the very best in energy saving and water recycling techniques.

Leading supplier, installer and maintenance provider for gas to power solutions, Edina, supplied two MWM TCG 2020 V20 engines capable of generating a total power output of 4MWe and 3.8MWt. The MWM engines are fuelled by a combination of natural gas mixed with biogas produced from the anaerobic digestion of some of the process waste product.

The natural gas/biogas integration system was designed and supplied by Edina and allows the generators to operate on natural gas only or natural gas with the inclusion of a proportion of biogas.

In addition, the CHP is designed to work in Island Mode Operation, in the event of a power outage at site, the CHP is configured to hold all essential loads until site power is re-established. Edina worked closely with the client to finalise a solution via their load shedding electrical infrastructure.

Commissioned in September 2013, the dairy is the most technological advanced and efficient of its kind and achieves zero waste to landfill. Arla’s ‘mega dairy’ sets a new benchmark in environmental standards on a global scale.

Edina continues to work with the food processing industry across the UK and Ireland, supporting clients to reduce their energy costs, reduce carbon emissions and deliver improved business competitiveness. The inclusion of CHP to any factory will improve sustainability criteria, save on current operating costs and protect from the known future electrical power cost rises from the electricity grid.
