Implementations

We provide complex energy-saving project implementation for the industry. We provide the comprehensive or partial project management, depending on a client’s preference towards mutual co-operation. If a project is implemented solely by a client, we provide support while elaborating costs estimates, we manage or supervise purchase processes, and moreover, we develop the project as a project supervisor so that an energy-saving result is guaranteed.

Main areas of our implementation activities

sources of heat, electrical energy and cooling

i.e. cogeneration, combustion processes automatization, high temperature heat pumps, biomas cogeneration, heat recovery, cooling storage systems, electrical energy storage systems, RES (renewable energy sources) installations

buildings and networks

i.e. thermal efficiency improvement, transmission networks, BMS systems

electrical infrastructure

i.e. lighting fixtures, compressed air, electrical drives

technological processes

process optimisation in industrial sectors, i.e. the food, metallurgical and chemical sector

Our projects

The wood processing sector

Having implemented an energy source which works in highly efficient cogeneration powered by biomas waste, the energy consumption was reduced by approximately 48 500 MWh. It resulted in annual average savings of approximately PLN 19 billion with the initial investment of about PLN 73 million. The payback period was almost 4 years long.

The food sector

An automated boiler house allowed discharge losses to be reduced and boilers efficiency to be improved. Such a modernisation made it possible to reduce the annual energy consumption by 13 GWh. It resulted in generating savings of PLN 700 thousand annually with the initial investment of less than PLN 1.2 million. The payback period was shorter than 2 years.

The plastics sector

While recovering compressed air in a process unit, the amount of produced air was reduced by 29.5%. Such a modernisation made it possible to reduce the annual energy consumption by 713 MWh. It resulted in generating savings of PLN 115 thousand annually with the initial investment of less than PLN 200 thousand. The payback period was shorter than 2 years.

The chemical sector

Energy losses were reduced due to the reduction and cooling station being replaced with a steam turbine equipped with a generator. The project led to savings of more than 87 GWh/year which generated average annual savings of PLN 6.7 million with the initial investment of approximately PLN 30 million. The payback period was almost 4.5 years long.

The construction sector

Heat from a tunnel kiln was recovered and applied to heat up carts before loading them into the kiln. The consumption of gas used by the burners was reduced. Such a modernisation made it possible to save over 4 GWh of energy annually which led to savings of PLN 655.6 thousand with the initial investment of PLN 1.3 million. The payback period was approximately 18 months long.

The metallurgical sector

Satisfying energy-saving results were achieved due to the modernisation of process installations which operate with an electrolyte evaporator. A new blower station was built-up and placed in the vicinity of existing evaporators. It reduced the energy consumption by approximately 7.82 GWh annually which led to savings of PLN 1.9 million with the initial investment of about PLN 1.1 million. The payback period was shorter than one year.
