“Working with ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA was absolutely awesome. They really understood what we were trying to do. They understood the flexibility that we needed in our brewhouse. We´re proud of the space that we built here with ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA. Without them as partners, I don´t think we´d be able to be as successful as we are” – Tom Kehoe (President Yards Brewing)

Making BrewDog more sustainable

We here at ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA have been working with the Scottish craft beer specialists since 2013. First, we added four 80 hl fermentation tanks to the brewery in Ellon, in 2015 we implemented a new 300 hl brewhouse and in 2021 an additional lauter tun, a pre-run vessel, an energy storage tank and several fermentation tanks.

Watch the newest video with Martin Dickie to find out how this helps BrewDog improving its sustainability in our YouTube channel.

Whiskey in Dresden/Germany

Germany’s largest whisky distillery is currently being built in Dresden. The plan is to produce 450.000 litres per year of the “Hellinger 42” brand in the Saxon capital. For the process steps of whisky mash production, the Dresdner Whisky Manufaktur UG decided to cooperate with ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA GmbH, Ludwigsburg. The dynamic mash filtration system NESSIE by ZIEMANN in combination with the T-REX by ZIEMANN was ordered as key technology.  More information here.

ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA is the expert for the complete process technology, be it in the brewhouse, in the fermentation and storage cellar or for the yeast management, filtration or bright beer tank cellar.

T3132 Industries Beer Fermentation Storage Process Technology 2ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA plans and installs your cellar piping.

The piping is optimally adapted to the individual process steps, taking into account options for future extensions. The production areas are complemented by the required CIP plants and supply systems (e.g. water deaeration plants). Depending on the individual requirements, the systems can be operated manually, semi-automatically or fully automated. During the planning and execution, special attention is paid to short, logical piping routes, low media consumption (water, compressed air, CO2, CIP concentrates, energy) and a high plant flexibility.

On-site fabrication of tanks

Sometimes tanks cannot be delivered in one piece. Reasons can be high transportation costs, physical limitations of infrastructure or logistics, etc. In such cases we can manufacture the tanks directly on site at the brewery. If this method is chosen, the individual components are prefabricated at the factory and inspected according to the regional regulations of the country of destination. Afterwards the tanks are shipped to the erection site in parts that can be easily assembled.


During the last few years, our companies from Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium and China have grown together under the umbrella of CIMC Enric Tank and Process B.V. (CETP).

It’s our tradition of longstanding global relationships that allows us to give our customers answers they can rely on. We know the challenges to our customers and meet them with state of the art and practice-approved solutions.
