Twellium brings beverages that are proven to be successful in Europe to the African region. Its formulas combine its own pure, natural mineral water with European technology and international standards in the manufacturing process, as well as meeting all the certification and safety standards of Ghana’s Food and Drugs Authority. Over the years Sidel and Twellium have forged a close working relationship based on continual improvement and cooperation. When Twellium needed to increase production capacity while still securing high flexibility, it invested in a Sidel Matrix PET complete line.
In terms of equipment lifecycle, the Sidel Matrix range can be easily adapted to meet future production needs and its upgradeable platform allows Twellium to take advantage of any technological developments. All Matrix equipment offers high levels of performance with minimal downtime and easy maintenance. This high efficiency means a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) – important for a fast-growing company like Twellium. Twelliumalso trusted Sidel’s PET packaging expertise and decided to adopt the StarLite™ base design. This award-winning and patented base enables bottle weight to be reduced by 20% for 0.5 litre bottles while improving stability and protecting against stress damage during production and transport.
An example of how energy costs have been reduced is the Sidel Matrix blower which consumes less compressed air and electrical power, resulting in energy savings of up to 45%. The Eco Oven technology – patented by Sidel – can be used to upgrade existing blowers and cut energy costs because it uses fewer lamps for heating the preforms. This reduction in energy consumption was particularly welcome because Ghana has faced considerable rises in energy costs. Moreover, Sidel’s service has kept all the lines running optimally: from delivering spare parts promptly in order to avoid expensive downtime, to ensuring Twellium could take full advantage of options and upgrades that improve the lines.
"“Flexibility is imperative for the company because of the variety of drinks we produce. In Ghana, our recent investment in a Sidel Matrix PET complete line has fulfilled these needs by offering faster changeovers and the ability to handle many different bottle formats.”"
