In this $120 million project, Cargill Starches and Sweeteners modified its Wheat
Starch Plant in Manchester, United Kingdom, to accommodate the processing of
a completely different raw material. High accuracy in design was essential for
avoiding any spills and leakages since food alcohol is a highly taxed product.
Project teams for different disciplines were located in United Kingdom,
Germany, and the central office in the Netherlands. Project Wise and
AutoPLANT proved to be the most efficient for integrating all disciplines—
including civil requisition, piping, and equipment modeling—with the main
equipment supplier’s input. The company successfully executed an online model
review with the main team for procurement and construction for the plant.
