The Challenge

Coco Cola Swaziland, South Africa would like to find a solution that would enable the following results: - Reduce energy consumption by 20% in one year. - Formulate a series of strategic initiatives that would enlist the commitment of corporate management and create employee awareness while helping meet departmental targets and investing in tools that assist with energy management. - Formulate a series of tactical initiatives that would optimize energy usage on the shop floor. These would include charging forklifts and running cold rooms only during off-peak periods, running the dust extractors only during working hours and basing lights and air-conditioning on someone’s presence. - Increase visibility into the factory and other processes. - Enable limited, non-intrusive control functions for certain processes.

The Solution

Coca-Cola Swaziland selected system integrator Systems Anywhere Coastal for the implementation of the energy management project who, in turn, selected a range of software solutions from the Invensys Wonderware stable. These solutions included the System Platform, Historian and Client, InTouch SCADA / HMI, Information Server and SmartGlance for mobile reporting. The InTouch system keeps operators informed on the exact real-time status of the plant and its various departments while management is kept informed on their smart phones via the SmartGlance mobile reporting facility. This real-time information availability allows for the study of cause-and-effect scenarios which were previously invisible to everyone.

Data Collected
Energy Consumption Rate, Energy Cost Per Unit, Facility Management, HVAC ( heating, ventilation, air conditioning), Throughput Per Plant
Operational Impact
  • [Cost Reduction - Energy]

    The improved visibility into energy usage and cost per plant and subsection and the implementation of smarter energy usage/ cost control protocols resulted in a reduction in energy consumption.

  • [Efficiency Improvement - Energy]

    Gaining the ability to control high energy operations to take place during low-cost periods and having the staff be immediately aware of their immediate impact on energy cost resulted in a tighter grip on corporate departmental budgets and targets.
