Real-time Visibility of Energy & Utilities for a Global Beverage Manufacturing Company

Data every 60 seconds

Multi-site deployment

Gaining visibility of gas, water and energy data was a top priority for one of our global beverage manufacturing clients. Bottling lines, filtration rooms and heating systems were the core industrial assets that required cloud connectivity, with an over-arching vision to support the organisations sustainability goals.

Becoming net-zero, reducing wastewater, and cutting carbon emissions by 50% were some of the sustainability goals the company wanted to achieve, with help from our team of industrial IoT specialists.

Aside from sustainability-related objectives, the company were struggling to take meter readings due to the type of metering in place. This manual process meant they had less time to focus on other key objectives. Additionally, without clear insight of their water consumption, the company were unable to verify the accuracy of their water utility bills. The Hark Platform provided an answer to each of these challenges.
