Unilever Sri Lanka’s Ceytea factory won the ‘Gold Flame’ award in the Manufacturing category at the Sri Lanka National Energy Efficiency Awards held at the BMICH recently. 
The award, which was presented by President Maithripala Sirisena, recognizes Ceytea’s energy conservation practices which have helped it realized significant savings in energy consumption in line with the nation’s renewable energy vision for 2020. 
“We are delighted to be recognized at this distinguished forum. This award is a reflection of the Ceytea team’s outstanding efforts and their commitment to implement the novel techniques of energy conservation and minimize all possible energy losses at the factory,” said Unilever Sri Lanka Supply Chain Director Noman Lutfi. 
“Staying true to our commitment to safeguarding the environment, our energy conservation practices have also helped the factory keep up its level of productivity and efficiency over the years to deliver business results,” he added.
The Unilever Ceytea factory, formally known as Premium Exports Ceylon Limited (PECL), is the biggest Unilever Instant Tea Factory located in Agarapathana. It functions as a strategic unit for the Lipton Ice Tea supply. From deploying a biomass boiler, energy efficient motors and LED lighting to maximizing daylight usage, power factor improvements and efficient usage of chillers and compressors, to solar power usage for electricity and hot water generation, the factory has undertaken numerous initiatives to become more energy efficient. Coupled with a mindset and prevailing culture of energy conservation, these efforts allowed the site to cut down on the volume of fossil fuels it uses and achieve great energy savings.
The Sri Lanka National Energy Efficiency Awards are organised by the Sustainable Energy Authority under the guidance of the Power and Renewable Energy Ministry to encourage private and public sector enterprises to lead and adopt renewable energy practices and energy conservation techniques.
