Ziemann positions Paulaner tank farm
All 87 tanks expected on site by end December
Last month Bavarian motorists witnessed delivery by Ziemann the first of 87 tanks destined for the under construction Paulaner brewery. The tank farm comprises fermentation and storage tanks as well as bright beer tanks.
All the tanks will have been manufactured by the Ziemann factory in Bürgstadt and will be delivered in one piece. The largest tanks have a diameter of 6.5 metres and a capacity of 4,400 hectolitres.
The tanks are undertaking a two-part journey, initially by inland rivers to Kelheim, south of Nuremberg on the Danube, and from there by road to Langwied, northwest of Munich.
Ziemann managing director Karl Butzmann explained, “We are planning one to three shipments, ach with two to three tanks per week. If the weather cooperates, the shipments will be completed in December.”
The new brewery, with an annual capacity of 3.5 million hectolitres, is scheduled to be fully operational early in 2016.
Ziemann International is today a member of the China International Marine Container (CIMC) Group since August 2012. Within this group it is a 100% subsidiary of CMIC Enric Tanks and Process B.V.
Paulaner is part of Brau Holding International AG), the joint venture between Schörghuber Ventures (50.1%) and Heineken (49.9%).
