ENGIE operates energy center for Milupa

Long-term energy supply contracting for Fulda plant

20 tons of steam, 42,000 liters of fresh water and 50 standard cubic meters of nitrogen per hour, 2,000 kilowatts of available heat and 5,500 kilowatts  of cooling capacity – these are the maximum available capacities available for the new Milupa production facility. The Danone subsidiary produces about 35,000 tons of dry powder for infant nutrition and medical food annually at the production facility that opened in 2016. 

Right in the middle: the energy center, which ENGIE operates as a service partner in the context of a long-term energy supply contract. It supplies  the new area of the plant with the necessary energy and the necessary media for production operations 24 hours a day.

Customer benefits

Building technology and energy services for the highest demands from a single source
Comprehensive service as part of energy supply contract
High service level: ENGIE's compliance with all regulatory requirements and inspection obligations


The energy supply contracting agreement obliges ENGIE, as contracting partner, to ensure the supply and operation of the new production site at all times, taking into account all official requirements and conformity with the customer. Due to the high quality standards of Danone, the checks and inspection obligations go well beyond the official requirements. Other important aspects relate to the continuous training of ENGIE employees in order to be able to work in the sensitive food sector, as well as regular customer audits and tours, which enable a close coordination in addition to daily exchanges.
