Project Description

The Yashili Powder Project was a design and build job undertaken together with Ebert Construction. The site is located in Pokeno, a small town beside State Highway 1 south of Auckland.

The scope of works for this greenfield project was to construct an infant powder manufacturing plant for the Chinese developer, Yashili. This included construction of a 36-metre-tall dryer tower with wet processing and packing areas, a tanker reception with chemical storage bunds, a silo slab and an 18,000 square metre drystore with an elevated load-out.

A late variation consisting of blending and canning facilities was added to the scope of the $220 million project and simultaneously constructed with the main tower.

The plant officially opened in November 2015 with an annual production capacity of over 50,000 tonnes of formula.
