Production expansion Barry Callebaut
Customisation and flexibility
Complete drawings of the new production line in Halle were available and NLT-Pivaco was tasked with transforming the plans into reality. Minor differences between the drawings and on site circumstances were resolved on the spot in consultation with Callebaut. As NLT-Pivaco has its own workshop, the team could quickly respond to changing circumstances and provide a full-service solution. With access to the workshop and close consultation with the client to avoid obstacles, progress of the new production line remained on track.
First big project for Callebaut
Callebaut had previously commissioned NLT-Pivaco to carry out various smaller projects, but this was the first large undertaking for the famous couverture chocolate manufacturer. The double-walled piping system is necessary to ensure that chocolate remains fluid during the production process. For this, hot water is used - similar to using au bain-marie - which is pumped through the double walls.
