Zulal is part of SEWA (Sharjah Electricity and Water and Gas Authority) in the UAE. The company’s vision is to provide clean, pure drinking water for everyone in the region. It is the only water enterprise that provides 100% pure groundwater directly from the Hamdah wells in Sharjah. In line with SEWA’s sustainability policy, Zulal wanted to optimise its carbon footprint and install a new high-speed line to meet market demand in the existing factory.
Sidel provided Zulal with a Super Combi Compact water line that runs at up to 45,000 bph. The layout was a key element of the design for this project, because the line had to be installed in the existing location. Sidel experts redesigned the “Accumulation, Combiner and Labeller” and succeeded in fitting the Super Combi Compact as well as its conveyors and two packers into the space available by reducing the line’s overall footprint by 25%.
The Super Combi Compact water line met the client’s demands and helped reduce Zulal’s carbon footprint with considerable PET savings of 215kg for 330ml formats and 331kg for 500ml formats per production run. Thanks to Sidel’s complete line solution, Zulal also pays 56% less for energy, while increasing productivity by 280% compared to the existing line.
"“After installing Sidel’s complete water line, we now have the capacity to supply our products to major airlines, hotels, schools and offices. We are really pleased with the enhanced performance.”"
