ZIEMANN has been awarded a contract to realize a second cellar project

Desnoes & Geddes Limited, a company belonging to the Diageo Group, consistently continues its modernization. After 2014, the two sister companies ZIEMANN International GmbH and Holvrieka BV have been awarded a contract to realize a further cellar project for the Jamaican brewery in Kingston.

As part of this expansion stage, Holvrieka will supply ten so-called “Dual Purpose Vessels” (DPV). These tanks are suitable for both process and bright beer tank functions. This will provide the producer of the Jamaican top brand “Red Stripe” with a maximum of flexibility regarding its fermentation, storage and bright beer tank capacities.

ZIEMANN will plan and build the new semi-automatic cellar. In addition, ZIEMANN will be responsible for the pipework and the system integration inclusive of the control system. The entire project shall be completed by the end of September 2015.

Already in 2014, ZIEMANN and Holvrieka had successfully carried out a cellar modernization project for Desnoes & Geddes. At that time, Holvrieka supplied six DPVs and one Horap tank. As in 2015, ZIEMANN acted as a planner and system integrator.
