Delta to Procure 5.8gw of Clean Electricity to Power Packaging Operations in UK

Delta Packaging has awarded a contract to Electric Ireland under which the latter will supply electricity to power the former's site in West Belfast, the UK.

Under the £500,000 contract, Electric Ireland will supply 5.8GWh of clean electricity to the site, PackagingNews reported.

The contract with Electric Ireland will complement the company's cost control programmes being implemented within the environmentally friendly facility, according to media sources.

Electric Ireland business markets manager Tony Dunlea said: "We are pleased to have been chosen by Delta Packaging to partner with them for their Belfast based manufacturing facility.

"We're always looking for ways to differentiate ourselves and provide ideas to help make life better for our customers and we're dedicated to ensuring that our business solutions are simple and transparent.

"This contract is testament to our competitive pricing, flexible energy products, positive customer relationships and value added services."

The Belfast site had undergone an expansion last year, as part of the company's £40m five year investment programme, as reported by PackagingNews.

Delta Packaging finance director Patrick McGibbon said: "Our Belfast manufacturing operation has been expanded recently to become one of the largest carton converting sites within the UK.

"Although, we have invested in our capacity and strengthened our capability to offer a more competitive solution to markets across Europe, we have also invested significantly in the company's environmental rating, having achieved ISO 14001 and soon to achieve ISO 50001."

Delta produces printed carton packaging for major foodservice firms including McDonald's, Kellogg's and KFC.
