Expanded Coca-Cola bottling plant now operational in Varanasi

The INR1500 million Coca-Cola bottling facility at Varanasi in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India, is now fully operational after work to expand the plant was completed. Mott MacDonald provided engineering, procurement assistance and construction management services on the project on behalf of Hindustan Coca Cola Beverages Private Limited.

Coca-Cola plans to invest US$5 billion in India by 2020 in areas such as innovation, access to cold drink equipment and expansion of its manufacturing facilities and distribution network. The brownfield automated plant is now capable of producing 600 polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles per minute following upgrades to its utilities and electrical equipment, as well as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning and fire safety systems.

Arpan Shah, Mott MacDonald’s project manager said: “In terms of technical achievement, this is a proud moment for Mott MacDonald. We were able to showcase our world-class industrial expertise in providing solutions to complex design requirements on this project.”

In addition to its role on the Varanasi plant, Mott MacDonald has also been appointed to provide similar services for the Bidadi bottling plant in Bangalore, which is due to be operational by early 2014.
