Integrated Packaging

Challenge

A lack of visibility of where energy was being used within the plant. all the way form lighting to machine efficiency. Manufacturing businesses have variable energy use due to production runs. It was essential that any outcomes could be measured against production runs.

Solution

Funded under EECA. ESP completed installed metering, followed up with an onsite review (simplified audit) with a monitoring and target report provided. We also established the measurement and verification plan to the IPMVP standard this allowed Integrated Packaging to understand the real savings aligned with their production output. Reports provided each year.  Under ESP managed service regular site meetings and reviews occur to build business cases and incorporate onsite needs with the data driven insights and establish a validated operational plan.

Outcome

The regular meetings ensure that Integrated Packaging has a regular operational process to review and ensure IP are on track to deliver to their targets.  The team access Hub regular to monitor use particularly as they make changes and run different product mixes. The data has definately shown its value and IP are now looking to expand the amount of data collected.  Have achieved wins of X% to date through improved energy efficiency and operational optimisation. The continue working toward their ultimate savings target of Y%.
