Sidel, the leading global provider of PET solutions for liquid packaging, has been awarded three major new projects by The Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company (Coca-Cola HBC). The project wins are in Nigeria (Ikeja), Russia (Moscow) and Belarus (Minsk).
"The quality and safety of our beverages are our highest priority, which is why packaging is so vital. At the same time as protecting the liquid, we want our bottles to stay attractive across the supply chain and on the supermarket shelf, and offer a good consumer experience thereafter," said Costin Barbu, Engineering Director at Coca-Cola HBC. "We therefore work with our partners like Sidel to drive innovation and identify new ways to improve packaging that creates value for us and our consumers."
Another Sidel line for Moscow
In Moscow, where Coca-Cola HBC is already operating four Sidel lines - including two Sidel Combis - the new line will comprise a Sidel MatrixT Combi, a Sidel Matrix Labeller, a mixer, two packers, a handle applicator, a conveyor, a high-level linear palletiser and a stretch wrapper. It has the capacity to produce 500ml and 1,500ml PET bottles at a rate of 45,000 and 33,500 bottles per hour, respectively. Sidel is also providing Coca-Cola's operators with over two weeks of training, on-site technical support for six months and ongoing spare parts and maintenance support.
