Scottish Grain Distillery Expansion
Location: Fife, Scotland
Scope: Overall process design and expansion of major Scottish Grain Distillery
Diageo’s ‘Project Forth’ has driven a host of improvements to procedures, operations and facilities at the Cameronbridge grain distillery in Scotland. Diageo’s mission was threefold: to deliver the project safely, to use ‘best available technology’ and leave a legacy of which all could be proud. The overall project spanned several years and is divided into four major but related projects with Briggs of Burton being heavily involved in Phases 2 and 3.
- Phase 2: upgrade fermentation and cleaning in place (CIP), all designed and managed by Briggs of Burton
- Phase 3: pre-distillation with all processing designed and built by Briggs of Burton
Briggs of Burton plc embarked on this project in 2007, fast-forward to today and after providing some 23 km of stainless steel pipe ranging in size 6 mm to 20-in, 4651 mainly valves and over 200 pumps, Diageo has achieved its originally specified mission statement. “Many of the changes made at Cameronbridge have seen adjustments, improvements or automation of traditional custom and practice procedures.”
