Uno's Manufacturing Plant

Venergy installed an AutoTune (Power Factor Correction) device at the main switchgear of the manufacturing plant with sensors and an advanced meter that was then connected to the current Industrial Control System (ICS). Venergy identified and initiated this plant energy reduction project and then designed, installed, and commissioned the project. Following staff training and implementation, this new energy project reduced energy consumption by 6% and eliminated a power factor penalty of 3%. Overall payback for the customer was under 12 months.
