DUBAI - Mai Dubai, a bottled water company fully owned by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), has made a landmark milestone with the launch of the fastest bottled water production line in Asia, Oceania, and Africa (AOA) region.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, inaugurated Mai Dubai’s water line, which was completed in collaboration with Sidel, leading provider of equipment and services solutions for packaging beverage, food, home and personal care products in PET, cans and glass.
The newly opened facility leverages Sidel’s ‘Super Combi’ technology to produce a maximum output of 86,000 bottles per hour. Mai Dubai is going to capitalise on this performance to expand its bottled water business and cement its lead in the industry.
"Through this latest investment in our water production facility, we are now well-positioned to make Mai Dubai the number one brand in the UAE market. Following our partnership, we are looking forward to developing a centre of excellence for bottled water in the Asia, Oceania, and Africa (AOA) region," Al Tayer said.
The cooperation began with Sidel pilot testing its digital EIT (Efficiency Improvement Tool) platform, an advanced line monitoring system, on Mai Dubai’s existing production lines. The company’s confidence in the EIT platform had opened the door for Sidel to demonstrate the power of its ‘Super Combi’ technology, especially in terms of boosting the organisation’s digitalisation efforts.
Harbinder Kathuria, Vice President Sales for the Middle East, Africa & India at Sidel, said that the launch of the region’s fastest water bottling line at the Mai Dubai plant in Dubai is testament to the collaboration between two organisations coming together to enhance operational efficiencies and productivity thanks to Sidel’s innovative Super Combi technology.
"Working alongside the Mai Dubai team mirrors our commitment to provide our partners with advanced solutions to ensure that they reach their corporate goals, boost their performance, and help them sustainably grow their respective businesses," he added.
