Coca-Cola Hellenic Cuts CO2 Emissions at its Ukraine Plant

Coca-Cola Hellenic Cuts CO2 Emissions at its Ukraine Plant

Coca-Cola Hellenic has inaugurated advanced energy-efficient power generating capacity at its plant in Ukraine that will reduce CO2 emissions by more than 40% and will increase energy efficiency by more than 32% versus traditional power generation. The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant, which is located at the Coca-Cola Hellenic bottling facility in Kyiv region, was introduced in partnership with ContourGlobal, an international provider of efficient energy solutions. ContourGlobal has invested approximately Eur18 million in the project.

With electrical capacity of 6MW, the CHP plant supplies highly efficient clean electricity, heat, chilled water and CO2 for the soft drink production process. It is the only ‘quad generation’ plant in Ukraine.

Natural gas is the primary source of fuel for the twin Jenbacher engines which generate electricity. As they turn, they create heat which is captured to produce hot water for production use. This then passes through absorption chillers to provide chilled water.

The use of combined electricity, heat and cooling generation guarantees high efficiency in environmental, technical and financial terms.

George Nizharadze, senior vice president of ContourGlobal Solutions, comments: “This is the eighth project of its kind which we have built, commissioned and are going to operate in partnership with Coca-Cola Hellenic. This represents our commitment and capability in the development and operation of innovative cogeneration for industrial partners interested in long term, efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly sources of power generation,”

Working in partnership, Coca-Cola Hellenic and ContourGlobal have pledged to build a total of 20 CHP facilities in different countries by 2015. This marks the biggest CHP programme in the beverages industry and is expected to reduce global carbon emissions by 250,000 tonnes each year on completion.
