In recent years the Petrochemical industry has came under increased scrutiny, due to the high energy use worldwide. Energy is undoubtedly the biggest cost factor in this segment according to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, as these companies produce large volumes of basic and intermediate organic chemicals as well as large volumes of plastics.
Improving overall energy efficiency will reduce energy costs and increase predictable earnings, especially with the high energy prices we are currently experiencing. With the installation of our Power-Star meters we have had significant success stories with companies like Afrox, FFS Refiners and Protea Chemicals. Their energy usage was constantly monitored, a reduction in energy bills were demonstrated as well as conforming to the standards set out by world recognized energy regulators .
Detailed measurements also allowed for our engineers to target specific areas for energy intervention and they could measure the projects that have been implemented. Our devices have also been used with bill verification exercises to establish the precise costs for the energy used. Further savings can also be introduced by tariff analysis. We have a standing database that is constantly being updated, that shows all of the tariffs that are available to you.
