The Mega Plant is one of the largest and most technically advances carbonated soft drinks factories in the world. The plant started operations in January 2017 after a 5 year design and construction phase costing over 2 billion SAR.
Occupying a plot size of 300,000m2 with over 100,000m2 under roof, the factory is home to 8 high speed production lines which are capable of producing 200 pallets per hour.
The package types include Bag-in-Box (for fountain drinks), Cans, Glass and PET bottles.
Equipment for the factory was sourced from all over the world, including; France, Italy, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands and UK.
One of the most important ingredients is water and in the first full year of operation, we used one billion liters of water. All water is treated to the highest standards using a combination of ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis technology. Any waste water that the plant produces is recycled on-site in a state of the art treatment plant and used to irrigate the grounds and in activities that are not part of production.
Material handing is mainly handled by laser guided vehicles which allow the plant to apply a “zero touch” principle, meaning that there is no human needed to move items around the factory. This state of the art system extends to the way we dispatch pallets to our warehousing network. There is a monorail that runs along the factory collection our products which delivers them to a fully automated warehouse. In this warehouse, 16 cranes that are 35 meters tall, automatically put the pallets into racks for storage until they are needed to be dispatched.
Once we are ready to send the pallets to our customers and our external warehouses, a specially designed fleet of lorries docks into position and are then automatically loaded.
