GEA and long-term customer Chr. Hansen have completed a long-term project
following the inauguration of what the company claims is the world’s largest
fermentation plant for bacterial cultures at the customer’s site in Copenhagen,
Denmark.

Chr. Hansen is a global bioscience company that develops natural solutions for the
food, nutritional, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. The production site now
comprises the latest highly complex AIR17-fermentation project in the form of
four production lines.

Jesper Finnemann, GEA’s senior project manager, said: “Being able to successfully
execute a project of this scale and complexity is the result of carefully listening to the
customer’s needs at all times and careful planning. The high expertise of the GEA team responsible for executing the project and the successful result managed to
exceed Chr. Hansen’s expectations.”
