Fonterra SIG line replacement
Client: Fonterra Whareroa
Size of Project Team: 10
Project Duration: Five Months
Lost Time Injuries: Zero
Fonterra Whareroa embarked on upgrading their SIG butter patting machine with a new Benhill 5500 machine in May 2018. JLE Electrical was appointed as the electrical and instrumentation contractor working under Vertex, the head contractor for this project. The old machine and associated instrumentation, pneumatics, conveyors, coders and case packers were removed and replaced with new equipment. JLE decommissioned
the old installation; installed the new equipment and commissioned the plant together with the head contractor and machine specialist.
JLE Electrical also designed, supplied and installed the safety system for this project. This was a very successful project with an excellent end product leading to continued business with the head contractor and customer.
