Beer for Europe

HOYER to use new generation tank containers for Euro 2012 football cup

Hamburg, Germany, February 16th, 2012 – Transporting beer over long distances, not to mention heat and cold, poses huge challenges for beer shippers. As of February 2012, Hamburg’s HOYER group, always one for innovative technical solutions, is offering its clients integrated cooling and heating technology for beer tank containers. Tanks can be kept at constant temperatures, regardless of how high or low temperatures are outside. Lengthy beer transport within Europe and overseas will be temperature-controlled at constant ideal temperatures of one to six degrees Celsius.

By increasing the number of containers by 20 to a total 240 units (with volume capacity of up to 297 hectolitres per container), HOYER can guarantee supply for large events such as the upcoming European football championship in the Ukraine and Poland. This means that seasonal bottlenecks can be avoided in future.

HOYER is setting high standards in terms of food and drink hygiene with its beer tank containers. Newly developed sampling valves on the containers allow antiseptic and microbiological testing of the product, making quality control checks possible at any time.

This means that football fans can be sure of a temperature-controlled beer in time for the UEFA EURO 2012 football cup in the Ukraine and Poland.
