ContourGlobal and Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company Inaugurate Innovative Combined Heat and

Power (CHP) Facility In Romania

NEW YORK, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --



    ContourGlobal and Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company announced today the

inauguration of a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant located at Coca-Cola

Hellenic's bottling facility in Ploiesti, Romania. The innovative plant will

supply, in a highly efficient and environmentally friendly process, all the

electricity, steam and chilled water required for the production of Coca-Cola

Hellenic's beverages. A second similar plant is currently being developed in

Romania, at Timisoara, and will begin operations next year.

    The Ploiesti CHP plant is a technologically advanced facility that uses

clean natural gas to generate electricity and captures the heat emanating

from the engine to provide additional energy that is used in the bottling

plant. By capturing heat that otherwise would be wasted, ContourGlobal's CHP

plant substantially increases the efficiency of the bottling process while at

the same time significantly lowering CO2 emissions. Additionally,

ContourGlobal's CHP plant captures more than 95% of its CO2 emissions for use

in industrial and commercial processes. The facility will greatly reduce

energy use in Coca-Cola Hellenic's operations as part of its broad ranging

environmental protection measures in the countries where it does business.

    Coca-Cola Hellenic has long maintained a commitment to sustainable growth

and when the time came to take active steps to carry out this commitment,

ContourGlobal was selected to provide a single point solution for its energy

needs at production facilities in Europe and Africa. The facility in Ploiesti

is the first of over fifteen similar environmentally friendly energy

production plants being developed within Coca-Cola Hellenic's bottling


    Joseph Brandt, President and Chief Executive Officer of ContourGlobal,

stated, "Producing consumer products sustainably is one of the key challenges

of our time. Through our partnership with Coca-Cola Hellenic, we have

recombined existing technologies to create an innovative energy facility at

Coca-Cola Hellenic's bottling plant in Romania. Our CHP plant is highly

energy efficient and substantially reduces CO2 emissions. We are proud that

Coca-Cola Hellenic chose ContourGlobal to develop and operate these

innovative facilities throughout Europe and Africa."

    ContourGlobal develops and operates electric and combined heat and power

businesses around the world for both governments and multinational companies.

The Company focuses upon both high-growth, under-served markets and

innovative niches within developed markets such as renewable energy and

Combined Heat and Power. The Company consists of eleven businesses in

operation and construction on four continents with approximately 1,000 MW of

generating capacity and an active pipeline of new development business

totaling 10,000 MW.

    To develop this innovative facility, ContourGlobal worked with a multinational project team including GE

Jenbacher (supplier of electricity generating engines, located in Austria), Union Engineering (supplier of CO2

capture equipment, located in Denmark), Carrier (supplier of absorption chillers, located in France), Loial

(construction contractor, located in Romania), Niras (engineering firm, located in Denmark), Norton Rose

(legal counsel, located in the United Kingdom and Romania), Deloitte and Touche (tax and energy market

adviser, located in Romania), and Unisensor (located in Germany, makers of CO2 monitoring equipment).
