Elan: the water that comes from the sacred mountains of Cambodia

 

Rice paddies as far as the eye can see, and magical temples make Cambodia a small treasure

 

In the heart of Phnom Kulen National Park, an area rich in wonderful waterfalls and considered holy by the local population, Kulen Spring Co. invested in a 31,800 bottles/hour plant of the latest generation supplied by SMI for bottling Elan and Eragold water in PET containers.

The new line includes a stretch-blow moulding, filling and capping system from the ECOBLOC® ERGON range, a wrap-around cardboard packer from the LWP ERGON range, an automatic palletizing system from the APS ERGON range andconveyors for handling loose bottles and packs.

The attention of Kulen Spring Co. towards the environment pushes the company to continuous investments to preserve the surrounding environment, use only energy from renewable sources and adopt sophisticated plants and equipment that preserve the quality of the water and ensure a higher production efficiency.
