Powerstar Saves Manufacturer £60,000

Manchester based System 3 Ltd, a leading manufacturer of high specification double glazed units for commercial and domestic applications, is benefitting from savings of around £60,000 per year, following the installation of Powerstar HV MAX.

System 3 Ltd, which was founded in 1984, was looking to upgrade the High Voltage (HV) infrastructure at their manufacturing facility in Denton, to improve electrical efficiency and reduce the carbon emissions.

Powerstar recommended the installation of Powerstar HV MAX, a super low loss amorphous core distribution transformer, with integrated electronic-dynamic voltage optimisation, to replace the two current transformers on site.

In addition to financial benefits, the installation of Powerstar HV MAX also delivered reductions in electricity consumption of over 640,000kWh and carbon emissions of 317 tonnes per annum.

Powerstar HV MAX provided System 3 Ltd with a combined solution to two common problems. Firstly, it allowed the company to upgrade their HV infrastructure, as the super low loss amorphous core model significantly reduced transformer losses (both iron and copper losses), resulting in a more efficient HV infrastructure.

Secondly, the integrated electronic-dynamic voltage optimisation technology ensured additional electricity consumption savings were achieved through optimising, cleaning and conditioning the incoming power supply.

Powerstar HV MAX transformers exceed the latest Eco Design 2021 recommended energy efficiency specifications, resulting in a solution that offers users greater returns on investment over the transformers lifespan, in comparison to conventional transformers.

System 3 Ltd, are a company with a reputation for excellence at all levels, from manufacture through to deliver, so it was essential that any technologies implemented on site could be integrated without negatively impacting on business operations.

The Powerstar team provided a concept to completion, turnkey solution ensuring the most cost-effective solution was implemented with no disruption, and post installation provided a savings and verification service to establish the savings made.

Powerstar regional business development manager Russ Pemberton, who worked with System 3 Ltd on the project commented: “It is very rewarding to see how much clients save on their energy costs following the installation on Powerstar HV MAX”.

Russ added: “We offer a fully supportive approach to all our clients to ensure we only install the best engineered solution for their site. As a manufacturing company we know that our customers, especially those in the manufacturing industry, appreciate this tailored approach.”
