Unitata Berhad launches its third multi-stock deodoriser plant to keep up with demands for sustainably produced palm fractions.
The multi-stock deodoriser is Unitata’s third, and largest, with a capacity of 150mt/day. It can deodorise five different products at a time.
“In today’s market, the challenge is to ensure flexibility to meet different customer demands”, says Commercial Director of Unitata Berhad, Mr Martin Bek-Nielsen. “With our new multi-stock deodoriser, we can respond faster to new demands of quality, batch size and delivery time of various palm fractions.”
The new multi-stock deodoriser plant underlines Unitata’s strategy of being a ‘cocktail refinery’ with a constant focus on optimising its facilities and services in order to keep its position as one of Malaysia’s leading certified sustainable palm oil refineries.
Construction of the plant started in June 2019 and the deodoriser was put in place on the 24th of January 2020. All Unitata engineers and employees who have been a part of the project, helped tighten the bolts at the base of the deodoriser, “emphasizing our team spirit and how we encourage our employees to take responsibility in their company”, says Unitata’s Director In-Charge, Dato’ Carl Bek-Nielsen.
The new multi-stock deodoriser is expected to be commissioned in April 2020.
