Global IT firm Atos has landed a contract with innocent drinks to deliver an end-to-end technology solution for the company’s first carbon neutral factory in the Port of Rotterdam.

International IT services firm Atos specialises in business technology and digital transformation, and has worked regularly with clients to help them leverage new innovations in order to boost their business outcomes. Recently this has seen the firm win a string of contracts helping to deliver clients with state of the art computing systems.

Now, Atos has penned a new deal with smoothie-maker innocent drinks, which will see the firm deliver a holistic technology solution for the client’s first carbon neutral factory. Named ‘the blender,’ the facility in the Port of Rotterdam is intended to be a future-proof digital factory, where innocent looks to craft drinks from fruit to bottle “in a sustainable way.”

According to a release from the firm, Atos will help innocent create the digital factory by providing the carbon-neutral facility with solutions including active LAN and WIFI networking through advanced technology and compute and storage, supported with a professional services package and maintenance support. This is aimed at enabling innocent to benefit from improved operational efficiency and increased security through a cloud-based solution – enabling WIFI network management both on site at the blender in Rotterdam as well remotely from innocent’s London headquarters, Fruit Towers.

Eric Grall, Global Head of Manufacturing Industry at Atos, commented, “An innovative and modern company like innocent requires a suite of best-in-breed technologies, and that’s what we shall be providing for its carbon-neutral factory, the blender. We are delivering an end-to-end, integrated solution and by enabling innocent to centralise its manufacturing processes via an ecosystem of technologies, we are supporting the goal of innocent to be a force for good, for people and the planet.”

The partnership with Atos will support the transition of the innocent production process model. By integrating its manufacturing network in this way, innocent aims to reduce the number of road miles travelled by approximately 25% and cut its carbon footprint by 10%. This will be assisted by the scalable compute and storage technologies delivered, which will enable in-depth data gathering and analytics on power usage, helping innocent to monitor and adjust the factory’s energy consumption and drive resource efficiency to support its decarbonisation objectives.
