Krones has won the tender to supply bottling equipment to Ochakovo. The German company beat KHS and SIG Simonazzi to the contract, the Russian brewer said yesterday (18 October).

Krones will supply PET bottling equipment to the company, including blow moulding, packaging machines, fillers and labellers. The company was responsible for constructing one of Ochakovo's current bottling lines in Moscow.

The value of the deal was not disclosed.

Formed in 1978, Ochakovo produces around 650m litre of beer per year. The staff-owned company also makes RTDs, wine, brandy and alcohol-free drinks.
