HEAVY INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURING
B2Q was retained to reduce energy costs for a global leader in manufacturing and service for industrial assemblies in one of their many high-tech factories.
IMPLEMENTATION & STRATEGY
B2Q developed a comprehensive, multi-phase energy efficiency and operating cost reduction program to improve the factory’s energy footprint with a detail-oriented strategy built upon collaboration, engineering principals and leading innovative advancements in energy efficiency.
Phase 1 achieved in excess of 8.5M kWh in annual savings, and Phase 2 saved more than 4.5M kWh. To achieve these savings, B2Q:
Evaluated over 86 energy and operating efficiency projects, 12 of which created an annual savings of more than 8.5M kWh
Replaced high pressure steam traps in the power plant
Optimized a 12.5 MW condensing turbine, generating approximately 2.5M kWh annual savings
Conducted a compressed air leak audit yielding more than 3.5M kWh annual savings
Improved lighting fixtures generating more than 1.0M kWh annual savings
Replaced air compressors and designed new high pressure compressed air plant controls resulting in more than 4.0M kWh annual savings
