    Heineken España

    General

    Founded in 1864 in Amsterdam, Heineken is the number 1 brewer in Europe and number 3 brewer in the world with operations in 71 countries and over 250 brands. Sustainability has been a core operating principal for Heineken for 150 years. In 2010 Heineken launched an aggressive 
    10-year plan to reduce water usage and increase energy efficiency throughout its breweries, offices, and warehouses. When Heineken's new brewery in Seville, Spain started approaching its technological benchmark limits, the Seville brewery deployed the PI System as its energy and water monitoring solution to push its sustainability improvements past the technological limits. As part of these efforts, Heineken España uses PI ProcessBook to monitor consumption, ensure efficiency, troubleshoot issues and diagnose root causes.
