Energy Audit Details
A largest energy audit conducted by Greenwire Consulting requiring 3 months of investigative work. 14,500 sq m total was audited, a complex site with a large variety of energy consuming equipment contained within the manufacturing plant. The Saizeriya Australia site consisted of complex mechanical, air-handling and refrigeration systems, together with boilers & compressed air systems. 30 of the most energy hungry 3-phase equipment were monitored for 3 months to establish a load profile & to understand how, why & when energy was used. The results of the audit were presented via a powerpoint slideshow and a written energy audit report submitted. Saizeriya’s EHS Manager Tony Barnes has provided a testimonial for Greenwire’s work for this project.
