The connection between Krones and Kaiserdom Brewery goes back a long way: the first Krones machine, a labeller for swing-stopper bottles, was introduced by the traditional brewery back in 1959 and it has been brewing with a Steinecker brewhouse since 1968. The time had then come for new technologies, automation and greater energy efficiency. After expanding the fermentation and maturation cellar, Kaiserdom invested in a new brewhouse – and put its trust in Steinecker technology.
The project internally referred to as »Nafasi« (or »opportunity« in English) involved a great deal of work from a process technology viewpoint right from the very beginning, both for Kenya Breweries Ltd. (KBL) and for Krones as a turnkey supplier. To coordinate the different sections to meet their deadlines, over 1.7 million working hours were needed. During peak times, 840 workers were on site during the day and 50 during the night - of these, 250 alone were from Krones and its subsuppliers.
