Energy saving project at slabmaking

This project involved optimising the operation of the 21 Area Dedusting Fan to reduce running costs and electricity demand. This involved replacing the control system with a more reliable control panel which would allow the baghouse fan to be switched on and off when required. This has resulted in an electricity saving of over 1,691 MWh per annum. This equates to approximately 1,792 t CO2 emissions per annum which is equivalent to taking 377 motor vehicles off the road each year.
