Whether in the specifying of new plant or improving and optimising the performance of existing systems, the STS team has decades of experience in the Energy Management of refrigeration systems.
The largest cost element associated with owning refrigeration systems, the electrical energy they consume throughout their lives, typically accounts for 60% to 80% of the total cost of ownership. For a commercial or industrial refrigeration system this will run to many millions of pounds.
The greatest and easiest opportunity for minimising refrigeration plant energy consumption is at the specification and purchase phase of its life. Clearly defined technical specifications are the key to our clients achieving this.
It is also our experience that most refrigeration systems that have not undergone operational optimisation for a period of time, generally offer opportunities for significantly improving performance and reducing energy costs. It is not unusual to find energy saving opportunities of the order of 10% to 30%, often with instantaneous or fast paybacks.
With the aid of a new generation of low cost, wireless data gathering and uploading devices STS is able to remotely gather operational data over extended periods. This allows comprehensive analysis of system operation, for accurate assessment of energy saving opportunities and the ongoing validation of performance improvements.
