Description: FUCHS is the world’s largest independent lubricant manufacturer and LOVATO Electric were asked to propose a system to monitor both their energy consumption and generation as part of their compliance with the ISO50001:2011 Energy Management System Fuchs are dedicated to sustainable manufacturing and have invested in solar panels across their Stoke-on-Trent, UK site which are expected to generate over 380,000kWh of clean, renewable energy per year.
This should generate over 12% of the required energy for their manufacturing plant.
The LOVATO Electric system installed comprises Energy Meters, data concentrators and power analyzers networked via Synergy software.
The system is measuring electricity consumption, feed in from solar generated power system along with water and gas usage. This now allows them to monitor and report in compliance to ISO50001:2011 and was commended by the BSI auditing inspector.
46 DME Energy Meters, 14 DMG power analyzers, EXP expansion modules, DMECD Data Concentrators and Synergy Software are now helping this company monitor and highlight areas where they can save energy and in doing so cut costs and help the environment.
