Siemens Supports Decarbonization at Coca Cola Plant in Sweden

The Coca-Cola European Partners production facility in Jordbro south of Stockholm has reached a new milestone. In less than a year, the 70,000 square meter plant has slashed its energy use by 13 percent, thanks to a major energy efficiency project executed with Siemens Smart Infrastructure. The factory, which opened in 1997, produces more than 1 million liters of beverages a day, in different flavors and package sizes. Over the years, CCEP has worked systematically to reduce its climate impact. It partnered with Siemens to cut energy consumption and improve sustainability during production. The energy efficiency project resulted in annual savings equivalent to the amount of energy needed to charge a hybrid car 400,000 times.
Following an audit of the production plant’s energy use, Siemens together with Coca-Cola defined several energy-saving measures. In particular, new fans and heat recovery from high-pressure compressors were installed. This has led not only to substantial energy savings, but also to improved air quality within the buildings and to quieter operations, which has enhanced the quality of life for the surrounding residential areas. In addition, Siemens upgraded the existing building management system to the Desigo CC platform, facilitating continuous optimization of the production plant’s energy use.
For years, Siemens and Coca-Cola have collaborated on property automation. Now, they are looking into supporting CCEP’s net-zero target goals by 2040.
