Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages achieves 100% led lighting at Aranya factory in Bengaluru

Bengaluru, February 22, 2019: Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages (HCCB) Pvt. Ltd. today announced that it has achieved 100% LED lighting at its second factory located at the Bidadi Industrial Area, in Bengaluru. Referred to as the HCCB Aranya factory, this is one of the newer greenfield sites of HCCB, built with the state of the art technology and latest machines. The factory achieved the distinction of being a 100% LED lighted factory over a short span of two months. The intervention will save 2.5 lakh KWH per annum, reducing 200 tons in carbon footprint.

HCCB now meets 40% of its energy requirements across all factories through renewable and clean energy sources.

The Aranya factory becomes HCCB's fourth factory to have 100% LED lighting, after Vijayawada, Ameenpur and Siliguri. The project was implemented in phases by installing 1300 lights, replacing panel lights, high bay lights, flameproof lights, tube lights and high mast lights among others.

In addition to being 100% LED lit, this factory also sources more than 60% of its power supply through solar energy under state open access policy. The factory also has a boiler, which runs on 100% CNG. The CNG supply to the factory is by GAIL.

According to Ganesh G, Factory Manager, HCCB Aranya, "We are proud about the contribution that we will make to a sustainable and green ecosystem. This has been a great collaborative effort and I would like to thank all our partners and associates for their contribution. We are already looking at solar power as our primary energy source and use CNG for our boilers."

Many HCCB factories procure solar energy under state open access policy, and Briquette/CNG fuel for their thermal energy requirements. All HCCB factories in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have started using solar power for their primary energy requirements. The factory at Ameenpur has 75 per cent of its needs met by solar energy while the two others at Vijayawada and Srikalahasti have 50 per cent of their requirements met by solar power. The Company now meets 40% of its energy requirements across all factories through renewable energy sources.

HCCB has taken several other initiatives like the adoption of briquettes - made out of agricultural waste like groundnuts and coconut shells - to power boilers. Installation of solar rooftops, adoption of energy efficient technology and greater investments in high-speed manufacturing lines, are some other examples.
