DSS Silkeborg AS lands record-setting order

DSS has signed a contract with the Norwegian dairy group TINE for the supply of two virtually identical whey protein projects including several membrane filtration systems and related equipment with a total value around EUR 7.4 million. The systems are to be installed at TINE's brand new dairy at Jæren, near Stavanger and a new protein plant at the company´s facilities at Verdal, near Trondheim. 


The order is the largest in DSS' history and lifts the total order intake over the past twelve months up to about EUR 22 million, which is also a record for a single year.

The contract for these projects was won in fierce competition with large international groups like Tetrapak and GEA. TINE has chosen to place orders for each process section with many different suppliers, hoping to get the best available technology at all stages.

As global market leader in membrane filtration technology for the dairy industry, DSS has delivered and installed more than 500 membrane filtration plants in most parts of the world. The company has just celebrated its 10th anniversary and has a staff of about 35, but is currently seeking new employees.
