Adelholzener Alpenquellen GmbH, Germany

New batch system for syrup room

The mineral springs ‘Adelholzener Alpenquellen’, located in the Bavarian town of Chiemgau, are some of the largest and most famous in Germany. The company of the same name fills over 600 million bottles with spring water each year under the Adelholzener and Active O2 trademarks: mineral and medicinal water, but also various soft drinks. The mineral spring products enjoy a strong market position in more than 20 countries.

The IT environment of the syrup plants used at the Siegsdorf site to produce spritzers, lemonades, juices and isotonic beverages had become outdated over time. The hardware and the operating system no longer met the current requirements for stability and reliability. As a result, the company’s management decided to fully replace the hardware and software. The hardware component strategy is designed and implemented in-house – ProLeiT AG was commissioned with the task of migrating the software as a new process control system in 2018. The significantly enhanced range of setting options and the numerous functions of Plant Batch iT optimise not only the work of the operators but also the complete production process.
