EMSc (UK) Ltd, manufacturer of the Star® range of energy saving solutions, is pleased to announce that it recently completed the successful installation of its award-winning voltage optimisation system Powerstar at a number of councils across the country.
An installation at North East Lincolnshire Council resulted in savings of 24.72% on annual energy consumption and £6,094 off its annual electricity bill while Copeland Borough Council has seen an energy saving of 59,760kWh per annum and 32.6 tonnes of carbon – equivalent to the CO2 produced by driving 98 thousand miles in a car or heating a home for 5 years. Similarly, Newport City Council achieved an 8.8% energy consumption saving through Powerstar.
Commenting on the installations Dr Alex Mardapittas, EMSc (UK) Ltd managing director and designer of Powerstar said: “We employ two dedicated Powerstar public sector consultants with comprehensive and specialist knowledge of voltage optimisation in local authorities, central government and the NHS. These consultants are uniquely qualified to deal with the challenges faced by the public sector and it is their knowledge combined with the Powerstar team’s engineering expertise that has enabled these councils to optimise savings.”
He added: “As a company we have longstanding success within the public sector. As such, councils seeking a reliable, proven energy saving solution – one that can help reduce carbon emissions while realising significant savings on energy consumption – can be assured of professional and specialised service from the Powerstar team.”
Powerstar is a unique triple wound system with a patented design that actively reduces a considerable percentage of electrical energy consumption. The system, which is designed and manufactured in the UK, generally achieves average savings of 12-15%, improves the life expectancy of electrical equipment, and enhances power quality by reducing harmonics.
Powerstar is exported worldwide to countries including Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Malta and South Africa.
