Project Overview

Coca-Cola Amatil is Fiji’s most popular beverage company, and produces many of the world’s leading beverage brands including Coca-Cola, Coke Zero, Fanta, Powerade, and Minute Maid Pulpy, utilising various bottling and canning lines, automated labelling machines, carton wrappers, and automated palletisers.

Given the huge scale of the Coca-Cola Amatil Fiji production and packing facility, energy costs are a significant percentage of overall operating expenses. The opportunity to reduce these costs, combined with the benefit of utilising renewable, clean energy, positively contributing to the environment, are key factors in their decision to build, when complete, what will be the largest privately-funded solar Grid Connect Sytem in the South Pacific.

The Coca-Cola Solar Project is further evidence that organisations no longer have to choose the environment and sacrifice profits – environmntally-driven solutions, such as this one, provide a direct benefit to the organisation’s bottom line.
