Green Plus Project Objectives
  • Energy Efficiency improvements of 10% and Secure ISO50001
Key Challenges
  • A busy and growing manufacturing operation with challenges including Brexit and introduction of new technology and processes.
  • Energy efficiency and energy cost is important to manage especially with carbon taxes increasing in the years ahead.
Key Changes
  • We had to establish a team and get buy-in for Energy team as energy was not seen a significant cost as a percentage of sales in years gone by.
  • The company have been using oil fired boilers for years to generate steam to heat rooms that dry the roof tiles. We identified an energy saving opportunity to use a gas boiler and circulate low temperature hot water to do equivalent drying with better control and lower cost.
Results/Outcomes
  • Our team are now eager to identify and focus on energy and cost savings and it is now seen as a core part of our roles.
