As with any project the investigative work we carry out needs to be adapted to suit the site, and we found that the initial readings our team took in situ were not giving us accurate data, which meant that installing voltage data-logging equipment over a four-week trial period seemed the most viable solution for full results.
We were easily able to provide this equipment at cost, installing the data loggers and monitoring the readings.
For our team, and indeed for Nippon Gases, this proved a useful exercise and working from the recorded data we were able to ensure the final Voltage Optimisation equipment that was chosen would provide the best performance for the site.
And quite a performance, even if we say this ourselves; with emissions reduced by over 130,638 Kg per annum, and a reduction in capital spending which we are happy to say, is six figures over what we had initially estimated.
Steven Cullum, our Managing Director, said
“The Immingham plant installation has been a great success. Hounslow will follow suit.
Our engineers have been using their expertise to accurately record and evaluate data from the specially introduced data loggers, and from this Nippon Gases can confidently move forwards in the knowledge that the Voltage Optimisation we have equipped them with will contribute considerably to their environmental efforts.
It is always a pleasure to see our equipment and know-how working to support sustainability across diverse industry sectors.”
Stephen Reed of Nippon Gases, said
“We were impressed with both the professionalism of the installation and the quality of service provided by British Power Group, whose team has given excellent advice and guidance to support our green initiatives.
We look forward to seeing the ongoing CO₂ reductions at both our UK sites for many years ahead.”
