Yorkshire company powers ahead in Greece

Despite the current economic crisis in Greece, Yorkshire based company EMSc (UK) Limited is pleased to announce it has recently completed the successful installation of a Powerstar voltage optimisation system at one of Greece's leading fast food chains Goody's.

The Powerstar installation, which was at a Goody's Sykies store in Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city, was the first for both the retail chain and EMS.

The voltage supplied in Greece is generally lower than in the UK – 232V in the Goody's store – which means that an equivalent store in the UK could achieve even greater savings in energy costs and improved savings in carbon emissions, as the voltage supplied is closer to 242V. With double figure increases in energy prices being announced this could result in significant savings for UK based fast food chains.

EMS Cyprus division was initially commissioned to assess the Goody's Sykies store for the suitability of a Powerstar voltage optimisation system. The test highlighted that the average daily electricity consumption at the site was determined to be running at 790kWh. EMS quickly identified the level of voltage reduction and optimisation that could be achieved and the resulting level of savings in electricity consumption. Following the installation of the Powerstar system 7.87% reduction on total electricity consumption was achieved resulting in a significant annual cost saving. The savings data was independently measured and verified by the Greek electricity authority.

EMS's market leading solution Powerstar, also delivers savings in the maintenance and replacement costs of site based equipment as a result of matching the voltage more closely to the original design characteristics. The fast food chain has also reduced its carbon footprint by using less energy.

Kyriacos Michael, EMS Cyprus business development manager said, "The savings at Goody's Sykies have provided the restaurant with lowered electricity bills and reduced the store's impact on the environment. It is becoming increasingly important for large companies to use technologies like Powerstar voltage optimisation systems as a part of their overall carbon reduction strategy in order to lead the way to a greener future."
