Dairy industry

Dairy industry, due to energy-intensive production processes, feels changes of energy costs and their influence on shaping of final product price to the highest degree. At the same time, a reliable energy supply is an essential prerequisite for maintaining high quality standards and eliminating production losses.

With our comprehensive experience in the supply of heat, steam and cooling and our individually developed concepts, we provide our customers in the dairy industry with energy tailored to the needs of their production processes.

We focus on clean, environmentally friendly, sustainable and economical solutions. In this way, we reduce our customers’ carbon footprint and help secure the existence of their branches. Thanks to our many years of experience, we are able to make optimal use of complex legal and market conditions and thus provide further benefits to our customers.
