Energy Saving in Chemical Production (Solvay)

Solvey, world leaders in the essentials of chemicals production, benefited greatly by the innovative methods of energy saving they adopted.

Annual Savings Achieved

  • £18,445.00
  • 74.70 tons CO2


  • 1.3 years


  • Reductions in energy costs
  • Improved efficiency
  • Removal of reactive power charges

We were contacted as the manufacturing facilities electrical efficiency was very poor resulting in higher energy costs and penalties in the form of reactive power charges on their electricity bills despite the installation of energy efficiency measures across all of its processes.
The site had installed power factor correction many years ago although the capacitors had deteriorated over time and some had completely failed due to the effects harmonic distortion caused by a high degree of non liner loads like Inverters.
Our detailed survey revealed that the site was compliant in regards to distortion emissions although the energy saving power factor correction equipment had been negatively affected and needed repair and modification to ensure trouble free operation.
The EnergyAce system was applied and a planned maintenance system put in place, the electrical efficiency improved to around 99% and the sites power factor correction systems are now operating trouble free resulting in lower energy costs.
