International Procurement and Logistics Case Study

International Procurement and Logistics Improve Energy Efficiency With Voltage Optimisation

Powerdown220 recently partnered with Moncur based food importer and processor, International Procurement and Logistics (IPL) to improve energy efficiency with voltage optimisation. IPL are part of the ASDA family, and source a variety of different products from around the world for the popular supermarket chain, including fresh fruits, nuts, plants and flowers and wines.

IPL’s approach to sustainability is at the heart of their business, and they undertake many different strategies to ensure sustainable practices run throughout their operations. They decided to further enhance their sustainability operations by investing in voltage optimisation. By reducing voltage on-site they reduced their energy consumption, meaning reduced carbon emissions and lower energy costs.

Another benefit of voltage optimisation is the prolonging of equipment life, by powering your electrical equipment at its design voltage, you can prolong its life by up to 46%, as stated by UK wiring regulations (BS7671). As a result, less waste in the form of prematurely burnt out equipment is going to landfills.

By investing in voltage optimisation, IPL will be enjoying some of the following benefits:

  • Energy consumption reduced by 7.68%
  • Annual carbon emissions are reduced by 22 tonnes.
  • Powerdown220 Savings Guarantee
  • 73.4% return on investment

We encourage more companies in the food and beverage industry and all other UK industries to consider voltage optimisation as a key energy saving technology, for its instant results and fast paybacks.
