Unilever – North American Ice Cream

Various Locations | Food + Industrial

Overview

ISG collaborated with Unilever to design a new facility replete with major mechanical equipment, cold storage, and structural design considerations.


Opportunity

Unilever wanted to maintain operations during construction of a new facility without any disruption to production.

Solution

ISG worked with the Unilever team to construct a 90,400-square-foot ice cream facility in Covington, Tennessee, that was adjacent to an aseptic, ready-to-drink product plant while allowing existing operations to continue without disruption during construction. The project included the integration of a new 67,000 lb/hr steam system, an automated cold storage and retrieval system, and ceiling reinforcement design to accommodate utility equipment located on the roof of the facility. ISG provided rate and construction negotiation with the utility to deliver a 12.47 kV feed to the largest ice cream production facility in the world. Design work included 12.47 kV switchgear, overhead and underground distribution lines, primary line protection equipment, utility and plant metering using Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), 12 unit substations ranging from 2.5 to 3.75 megavolt amperes (MVA) each, and low voltage distribution from the substations to plant loads. Unilever and ISG have worked on many additional projects, including the design of a 223,000-square-foot facility in Sikeston, Missouri, and a 175,850-square-foot plant in Henderson, Nevada.
