Midfield Group – Protein Recovery Plant

Published 19th December 2022

Waterman were engaged by Johns Lyng Commercial Builders to design the Building Services Engineering for a new Protein Recovery Plant for Midfield Group in Warrnambool.

The new state of the art plant processes animal by-products that aren’t used for human consumption and turns them into meat and bone protein meals, blood meals and tallow.

The facility includes approximately 9MW of heat recovery systems which are used to heat water for distribution throughout the abattoir facility.

Waterman prepared the design for the Mechanical, Electrical, Fire Protection and Hydraulic services systems for the facility. These systems were closely co-ordinated with sensitive environmental requirements and the specialty Protein Recovery Plant supplier.
