Power to Pepsi Beverages
Energy is believed to be the backbone of any economy and a countries’ most vital component of socio-economic growth. Energy demand has increased significantly as a result of industrial development and population growth, while energy supply is not able to meet current demand.
While Pakistan has energy production potential, balancing its supply against demand remains a challenge. The gap between energy demand and electricity supply continues to widen, as Pakistan seeks to revamp its current network.
With almost 60 acres of accumulative area under manufacturing and warehousing, Pakistan Beverage Limited is one of the most well equipped Pepsi Cola bottling plants among all Pepsi franchises across the country.
Pakistan Beverage Limited consists of five manufacturing sites which include the Karachi Site, Yasir Fruit Juice, Hyderabad Plant, Quetta Plant and the Aquafina site.
Pakistan Beverage Ltd. specified three Guascor-Energy G-56SL gas generator sets, each rated 956 kWe, to provide primary power to three of its manufacturing sites – Karachi, Hyderabad and Aquafina – within the country. Total output provided is 2.9 MWe.
All three engines continue to operate trouble free, with the longest running engine operating for 21,000 hours non-stop without a top overhaul.
The other two engines have successfully completed 14,000 and 12,000 hours to date, also without top overhauls. Pakistan Beverage Limited selected Guascor-Energy generating sets because of Guascor Energy engines brand recognition in the Pakistani market; proven reliability and quality of the equipment; the products’ ability to withstand tough ambient conditions; and reliable aftersales service.
