Assembly and commissioning of the new line required the involvement of an international team consisting of as many as 110 people from PepsiCo, representing Poland, Germany, Hungary, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, and Bulgaria.
Additionally, 17 external companies were involved in the construction process of the new line. The implementation of this project covered various aspects, including laying 15 km of cables and 1 km of pipes.
The new production line was built and launched in less than 2 months. The Żnin plant bottles Pepsi, Mirinda, 7UP, and Mountain Dew beverages. The maximum filling speed of this line is 36,500 bottles of 2 liters and up to 50,000 bottles of 0.5 liters per hour.
The plant specializes in the production of beverages from the full PepsiCo portfolio, ranging from 0.5 liters to 2.5 liters.
Compared to the previously used line in the plant, the new PepsiCo production line is characterized by increased efficiency without an increase in energy consumption. It produces 50% more beverages per unit of time. Additionally, it consumes 20% less carbon dioxide and reduces water consumption by 60% per liter of produced beverage.
A noteworthy feature of the new line is the reduction of the carbon footprint by 8.6 tons of carbon dioxide, achieved through the use of a modern heating tunnel for forming closures.
