PepsiCo Roha in Maharashta, India commissioned a Grundfos Pump Audit as part of their energy conservation initiative. The audit results highlighted an over consumption of energy and noticeable water wastage. As a consequence PepsiCo Roha decided to replace existing critical systems with energy efficient pumps.

On a Grundfos recommendation vertical pumps and closed couple end suction pumps were installed in the utility and process systems in order to optimise the water-energy performance. The following models were used:CRN 64-2, NB 125-200/221, and NB 100-200/170, CR 20-03, and CR 15-04.

The result was easy installation, trouble free operation and reliable performance. PepsiCo Roha recorded a 41% reduction in energy use compared with the old pumping system with a monthly energy saving of 5625 kWh units. Maintenance officials stated that this positive experience has contributed to PepsiCo Roha's initiation into energy conservation and ensured quality production due to the efficiency and reliability of Grundfos pumps.
