Meat Processing Plant secures Carbon Trust Funding for two Compressed Air projects!

Feb 25, 2007 in Case Studies

With the help of our technical team, a Dungannon based Meat Processing plant has secured two interest free loans from the carbon trust worth £35,000 to assist in two energy saving projects in Two of their main sites. After the success of a similar project with IPL in their “Kilbeggen” site earlier in the year, enquiries were made about the potential to help lower operating costs in the two main sites in Dungannon.

Our compressed air data loggers were installed on both systems in February 2009 and showed significant savings by installing two 75kw VSD compressors. Between the two sites, we established an estimated saving of over £18,000 pa, which equates to over 38 tonnes of carbon pa. Furthermore, both compressors qualify for the “Assure Plus” warranty package with peace of mind for up to 44,000hrs. In addition to the success of the carbon trust loan scheme, IPL assisted in securing grant funding for a total of £7,283 to assist in the two projects. Both VSD compressors were installed in November 2009.
