PPT Drives Systems Ltd customer wins ABB/Drives & Controls ENERGY SAVING AWARD


The first ABB/Drives & Controls Energy Saving Award has gone to Custom Glass Ltd, a Merseyside glass products manufacturer which cut its energy bills dramatically by fitting two VSD's supplied, installed and commissioned by PPT Drive Systems, to cooling blowers. In summer 2005, two 160kW ATV38 units were fitted to the fans and the guide vanes removed so that the air pressure is now directly controlled by the fan speed. The installation produced immediate benefits including:

  • A reduction in fan noise
  • The surrounding area is both cooler and cleaner
  • In the first few months, the site's average energy consumption was reduced by some 60,000kWhr per month - cutting its electricity bill by about 30%. Based on the initial savings, and before any tax relief based on the Enhanced Capital Allowance, the payback is expected to be well under a year.
