Leading Brewer Savours Benefits of Voltage Optimisation

3rd November 2014

One of Europe's leading brewers of Carlsberg, Photo Photaides Ltd, is benefiting from a reduction in energy consumption of 17% and a return on investment in only 12 months thanks to the installation of a Powerstar voltage optimisation system.

The world's market leading voltage optimisation provider, Powerstar, worked closely with onsite engineers throughout the process, conducting a full site survey, which identified that minimum guaranteed savings of 9% could be achieved following the installation of a Powerstar 250kVA system. The installation has also resulted in a reduction in carbon emissions of 21 tonnes. The site was the first ever to achieve a license to produce Carlsberg beer outside of Denmark, with Carlsberg now the 5th largest brewery group in the world. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme Carlsberg, is committed to ensuring business is conducted, in all respects and at all times, according to rigorous ethical standards. The company acts in an environmentally responsible manner across all its operations and it is constantly looking to achieve measurable results, particularly when it comes to reducing energy consumption. Dr. Alex Mardapittas managing director of Powerstar commented, -Working with such a well respected international company like Carlsberg is very rewarding for everyone at Powerstar, especially as the energy savings achieved are above the guaranteed savings we predicted. Marios Sarris, electrical engineer and automations manager at Photos Photiades,  commented, -A year after the installation of a Powerstar unit at our premises and upon reviewing the significant saving results in electricity consumption, we decided to install a second system. Designed and manufactured in the UK for over 13 years, Powerstar is the only voltage optimisation system in the world to be granted a patent on its design with average savings of 12-15%. Powerstar boasts 100% reliability with no recorded failures across thousands of installations globally, offering a secure, proven and reliable solution for businesses To find out how you can benefit from the installation of a Powerstar system visit www.powerstar.com.
