Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia recently upgraded their facility in Medan, North Sumatra with the installation of a new high-speed PET production line to deliver more product faster, to their growing customer base in the region.

In partnership with Amatil Indonesia and the installation contractor, our high-performance Indonesia team utilised cutting edge digital engineering and design expertise to deliver a solution that boosted production output by more than 68 per cent.

By applying a staged approach and bringing the latest in Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology to the project, we ensured a high quality and comprehensive solution to best meet Amatil Indonesia’s needs and priorities.

Our initial assessment and feasibility study involved a complete laser scan and 360-degree image capture of the site creating multiple ‘point clouds’. This data was then used to create a 3D representation, or ‘As-built' design of the existing facility, allowing us to add and manipulate design elements with millimetre precision. This enabled the contractor to install quickly and efficiently, keeping any re-work to an absolute minimum.  

Our design team was able to utilize cutting edge Virtual Reality (VR) technology throughout the design process to co-ordinate multiple design disciplines, conduct pre-build visualizations and constructability assessments within the complex brownfield environment.

The benefit of a BIM approach means that Amatil Indonesia now has a digital model of their new line upgrade that serves as a digital foundation to provide value throughout the BIM lifecycle with benefits realised through operations, maintenance and training.

Further examples of VR’s ongoing value can be seen in our work with Fonterra, where we developed an immersive and fully customisable virtual training environment for their health and safety, induction processes.
